Welcome to EYFS!
Our youngest children are split into two Foundation Stage classes: Rainbows and Sunshines.
Mrs Cooling teaches the Rainbow class.
Mrs Johnson/Mrs Kennedy teaches the Sunshine class.
Both classes are supported by Mrs Henson our Nursery Nurse and Mrs Phillips & Miss Whitehouse our Learning Support Assistants.
Our topics are:
Autumn 1: Do you want to be friends?
Autumn 2: Why do squirrels hide their nuts?
Spring 1: Are we there yet?
Spring 2: Do cows drink milk?
Summer 1: Why do ladybirds have spots?
Summer 2: Will you read me a story?
Our First Day at School!
Phonics in Foundation Stage
Children in all Foundation and KS1 classes receive daily phonics input. Children in Foundation stage begin learning sounds using the Jolly Phonics programme and then move onto following the Letters and Sounds teaching sequence.
Phonics is used to build the children's confidence in speaking and listening and to prepare children for learning to read through the development of their phonic knowledge and skills.
