EYFS Autumn 1

Welcome to Early Years!

Here you will find information about some of our learning this half term...

Please click the links for information about phonics, our letter patter, number patter or the guidance booklet about learning and development in the EYFS.

We have all settled into our new class really well and love being part of the Hedgehogs family! There are so many exciting activities and new experiences to enjoy and learn from. Here is some of the work we have been doing during this term......

Watch Humpty Dumpty & More Kids Songs - Super Simple Songs | Prime Video

We have been learning about Nursery Rhymes. We were able to re-tell our favourite rhymes using puppets and props in the role play area. 

During our Funky Fingers sessions we do a variety of activities which strengthen our finger muscles in readiness for mark-making and writing

The children have been developing their gross motor skills by practising riding on scooters, trikes and bikes. We have also developed our muscles through parachute play!

Physical Growing Time

It's not a STICK, it's a.....

Using the text Stanley's Stick as a starting-point, we have been using our imagination to think of many different uses for our stick. These included a wizard's wand, fishing rod, triceratops, light sabre, guitar and drumstick!

Outdoor Learning

We loved our whole school trip to Hundred Acres Wood! We spent the morning collecting and identifying leaves, naming trees and observing the similarities and differences of plant life in the woods

If frogs sits on logs, what do these animals sit on?

Rays sit on trays....

Lions sit on irons...

Snakes sit on rakes!

We have been enjoying rhythmic activities, poems and rhymes, as well as practising how to continue a rhyming string, having fun with words!

Clever Counting!

The children have been counting in lots of different ways. Counting more and fewer loose parts, playing interactive counting games to 20 and joining in lots of number rhymes and songs. The Number Pixie has been making the occasional visit to Hedgehog Class and the children have been helping him to count and order numbers too!

During our gardening sessions we have planted daffodil bulbs, watered the plants, tidied the beds by weeding and swept the leaves.
