Hello and welcome to the EYFS webpage. This page will be updated every Friday during term-time. Please check this weekly for information about what we have been doing during the week and recommended activities that you can do at home which will support your child's learning. Thank you to all of the parents/children that did the recommended activity last week. We are pleased to say that we are getting record numbers of recommended activities being completed so far this year, which really does make such a difference to your children's learning. Please note that you may choose to record your child's recommended homework in the home/school books or on Tapestry.
This week we have continued our topic 'What can you see in Summer'? We have been looking at and discussing the similarities and differences between beach photographs over the years. In maths we have been using mathematical language to talk about position, distance, capacity and size.

How you can help your child this week
Your child's end of reception year assessments will be finalised in a few week's time. Therefore we would like you to choose some or all of the below activities which are linked to the Early Learning Goals.
Understanding the World
Encourage your child to talk about animals and plants and how these might change, for example changes such as a caterpillar turning into a butterfly and a flower blooming in the summer. You could talk about bees taking pollen from flowers. Please note down anything your child says in their own words.
Ask your child to talk about similarities and differences between themselves and others and between communities, families and traditions, for example "I live at home with my Mum, my sister and my dog but my friend lives with her Mum and Dad, she doesn't have any sisters".
We really encourage you to do our recommended activities; your support at home has such a positive impact on your child's learning. If you do a recommended activity please note this in your child's orange home/school message book or on Tapestry. On Mondays we celebrate the homework completed and all children who have done this receive a house point and a sticker.
We hope that you find all of our staff helpful and approachable. Please don't hesitate to speak to any member of the team if you have any queries or concerns, however big or small.
