A Letter from Mrs Williams

Friday 20th November 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

What a busy week we have had in  EYFS.  This week linked to our narrative Immersion text we have created an amazing ‘thought shower’ around the theme of fears and what we are scared of. We have also found out some interesting facts about owls and have done some problem solving using owls and mice. We have been busy bees ! 

EYFS Curriculum - Next week we be doing the following:

Literacy -  Linked to ‘The owl who was afraid of the Dark’ we will be thinking of ideas to help Plop so that he is not afraid of the dark anymore. 

Letters and Sounds – We will be introducing the initial sounds g, o, c, k – we will be blending the sounds together to make simple words and practicing the correct letter formation.

Mathematics – We will be measuring lots of owls to see if we can put them in order of size and will be ordering numbers to 10 using numicon shapes alongside a maths buddy.  

Expressive Arts and Design -  Next  week we will be tasting hot chocolate  and toasting marshmallows around a pretend campfire outside like the children from our story. We will also be creating a beautiful lantern to help Plop see in the dark. They will be amazing! 

Little Reminders

  • Reading Packs are ready to go out - Please could you confirm that you have read the presentation on our learning platform Dojo so that we can send your reading pack home. 
  • If you have any jam jars or coffee jars at home that you don't need please could you send them into school for us to create lanterns to help Plop the owl not be afraid of the dark. 

Another fantastic week in our early years department!           

Have a lovely weekend and we will see you all Monday.
