Welcome to Chestnut Class!
In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) our priority is to ensure that the children are independent, happy and secure. Wherever possible we try to follow the interests of the children, this means that our topics are always evolving and changing. By building on the children's interests and engaging with them in activities of their choice, we are able to get a deeper level of learning and give them the skills to become lifelong learners.
Our teacher is Miss Cox and our teaching assistants are Miss Hodson, Mrs Radcliffe (in the mornings) and Mrs Wiseman (on Monday and Tuesday). We have specialist PE lessons for two terms a year with Miss Ward.
Our topic for this term is Nursery Rhymes. We will be learning lots of different Nursery rhymes alongside our story time phonics lessons. We are very excited to have been visited by the Phonics Fairy, the Tricky Word Troll and Beegu this term. We have been doing lots of listening activities ready to start our phonics lessons next week.
