Spring 1 Curriculum
In our carpet sessions, small group work and within free-flow, these are some of the things children will be learning this half term:
- Developing a story-line or narrative within our play
- Working with others to achieve a goal
Our continual provision covers the full Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, which you can explore here. Children will have lots of time every day to learn within the provision both inside and outside, both independently and with the support of their friends and adults in the environment.
Though our topic ‘Our community’ we will be learning:
- To ask questions
- To find information
- To develop our vocabulary
- To speak in more complex sentences
- To compare and contrast
Reading and Phonics
We will be reading high quality texts to engage children and spark their imagination. We will use these books as a stimulus for drama, role-play and artwork to develop understanding and language.
In phonics children will continue to learn sounds, following the RWI programme. They will use these sounds to read words/books appropriate to their reading level.
Each Friday your child will receive a book to read for enjoyment and either a phonics book or phonics homework. We would like you to write the books you read into your R@Homebook. Please log onto the reading eggs website, the log in is in your R@Homebbok, and let your child explore and work through the lessons.
During freeflow learning time, Early Years practitioners will be working with children to:
- Hear the sounds in words that we want to write and begin to segment CVC words eg. cat, mop, tin
- Begin to write short phrases with CVC words
- Begin to form letters correctly on a line
- Know how to write some ‘red words’ eg. the my is
Our maths learning will focus on:
- The numbers 6-10. Looking at the different ways we can make those numbers e.g. 2 and 4 make 6, 1 and 5 make 6
- Practising knowing how many number are in a set, called subitising.
Our theme this half term is ‘Dreams and Goals’ where we will be thinking about how we are proud of our achievements and how to overcome challenges.
