Welcome to Class 7: Spring Term
Mrs Zoe Grant & Mrs Julie Lincoln (Class teachers)
Miss Laura McLaughlin and Miss Abbie McCormick (Teaching Assistants)
Our topic for this term is Traditional Tales. We will be discussing the various characters in the stories and encouraging the children to think about why the characters behaved the way they did. We will building new beds for the three bears, baking gingerbread men and planting magic beans for Jack.
We will also be learning about Chinese New Year. We will be cooking and eating Chinese food, making lanterns and lucky money envelopes, and attempting some Chinese writing!
In phonics, some children will be tuning into instrumental and environmental sounds, learning action rhymes and exploring different ways of making body percussion sounds and patterns. Other children will be learning to orally blend and segment the sounds in simple words and to recognise rhythm and rhyme in words. We will also begin to introduce the children to new letter sounds.
In Mathematics, we will be putting numbers in order, counting objects accurately and finding one more or one less of a given number. We are also looking at simple 2D and 3D shapes and their properties, creating simple patterns and exploring shapes in our environment.
We will spend time reinforcing class rules and routines, developing friendships and learning to share and take turns
As an EYFS classroom, we use an encounter and discover approach allowing lots of opportunities to explore each of our fun topics.
We continue to have a really strong focus on supporting the development of attention, communication and social skills. We spend time each day following specific interventions for our children, regularly supported by our Speech and Language therapist.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our Class 7 parents and carers for their continued support. If you have any questions, need any guidance or have anything you'd like to share please use the email:
We love to see what you have been getting up to!
