Early Years - Mrs Rogerson 2021 - 2022
If you would like to share any of your child's fantastic achievements with us, or you have any questions or concerns, please contact me via email:
The Early Years Foundation Stage is the stage in your child's learning from birth to 5 years old. This is the time in school that we call Early Years. In your child's first year at school we aim to prepare the children for the rest of their school career. Children will have a range of experiences and opportunities to gain everyday skills and develop in a variety of areas of learning. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. A link to the parents guide can be found here.
These documents will give an overview of the objectives and development statements we will be working on each term in EYFS. These overviews are not set in stone and, as each child develops at an individual rate, the children may access the development statements at different times to suit their developmental stage.
We have three adults in Early Years, a teacher and two teaching assistants. Our class has an attached outdoor play area. In our class we enjoy a variety of adult led and self chosen indoor and outdoor activities.
All of our work from the provision in the classroom is recorded using the Class Dojo. If you would like to see your child's learning journey, and comment on any of the records, please log in through Class Dojo for up to date images and records.
As part of our first topic of "I am Special" we have been looking closely at our faces and those of other people. We have made portaits of ourselves and our friends in a range of different styles and media. Here are a few of the portraits we have made so far.
In the garden we have been looking closely at the plants and flowers. We decided to make some hammer art using some of the natural materials we could find. Here is some of our artwork. One of the questions we are still trying to answer is "Why will a brown Autumn leaf not make a picture?" Do you know?
Here are some of the experiences we had last year. Just a little flavour of what is in store over the coming months.
An Exciting Day - Rock Pool Experience
Last Summer the children were learning about rock pools and life under the sea. We had a rock pool experience talk from AquaLease where we learnt about the different creatures that live in the rock pools on the coast of Great Britain. We learnt so many amazing facts and thought of wonderful questions for the expert too. It was a really exciting day.
Our Amazing Work
Last year we worked together to make a sweet pea teepee. The children helped to fill the pots with compost, dig wells in the compost and plant the seedlings. We looked closely at the roots of the seedlings and the seeds they had been grown from. The children then carefully covered the roots in compost and helped to arrange the pots to make a circle ready for the plants to grow and form our teepee shape.
We have also been a part of the story telling workshop produced by Settle Schools. In the workshop an author was live in our classroom (via zoom) to tell their story with us. We used actions, character voices and sign language to re-tell the story of a skunk who went to the moon. We had a wonderful time!
Have a look at some of the wonderful work we have completed using Purple Mash.
