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 topic for this term is "Nursery Rhymes". We will be learning all about different nursery rhymes. We will focus on hearing rhyming words and thinking of our own rhyming words. You can find an overview of what we will be learning this term below.
Our teacher is Miss Cox and our teaching assistant is Miss Hodson. Mrs Cox comes in to bake with us on a Thursday and we have specialist PE lessons for two terms a year. The Year 6 children also work closely with us, hearing us read and helping us when we go out of school.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. This term we will use the hall to play parachute games, do yoga and practise moving in different ways to music.
To enable us to take ownership of our learning in the classroom and to see our learning journey over the term, we each have a square on the wall. Here we can put our pictures, things we have made and our teachers add photographs of our learning. We love looking at the work in our squares and talking to our friends about it.
Take a look at our planning overview for this term. This may well change slightly, as we try to follow the interests of the children as much as possible!
