Week 1 & 2

Week 3 & 4

Week 5 & 6

Spring 2 Week 1 & 2

Spring 2 Week 3 & 4

Spring 2 Week 5 & 6


Our EYFS provision will develop confidence and competence in learning and using key skills. This includes counting, sorting, matching, seeking patterns, making connections, recognising relationships and working with numbers, shapes, space and measure.


Our Maths focus over Spring Term will be on comparison of number, simple addition and subtraction and we will start to compare groups, and partition larger numbers. We aim to gain a true understanding of the numbers and what they really mean, as well as develop skills to use number effectively and confidently. We will also be investigating the properties of 2d and 3d shapes.

  • Reading is an important part of the children's development and children are required to read at home and practise their high frequency words everyday or as often as possible - do not forget to sign their reading diary too! These should be brought into school everyday. 
  • Remember you can change your child's reading book as often as you feel it is needed, either come into school in the morning with your child, or ask your child to change it when they come in. 
  • Parents are welcome in the class until 8.55am every morning, come and join us! 
  • PE day is every Thursday. All children are required to wear suitable Fitness clothing, as described in the Uniform Policy 
  • Fitness Friday is every Friday - children should wear black or navy tracksuit bottoms & jacket top with a plain white or yellow t-shirt.
  • Thursday afternoon is also our Forest session - children will be spending time outdoors in all weathers. Please ensure children have wellies, waterproof coats and clothing appropriate to the weather.  


What you need to know about the curriculum...

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. It gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.

As well as being the core document for all professionals working in the foundation years, the EYFS framework gives parents and carers confidence that regardless of where they choose for their child’s early education, they can be assured that the same statutory commitments and principles will underpin their child’s learning and development experience.
