Early Years Amber Class Mrs Custard and Mrs Heawood

Welcome to Early Years where we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, Department for Education.

We are Amber Class and our teachers are Mrs Custard and Mrs Heawood.

Early Years Foundation Stage

Early Years and Foundation Stage at Halsford Park School prepares the children for the wider world through consistent modelling of good behaviour strategies and language, helping children to relate to both their peers and adults in a positive way, and helping children develop vital life-skills, such as safety, kindness and considerate behaviour.

Day to day, the children learn by working and playing in a free-flow environment in which they have constant access to a wide variety of resources, including computers, role-play areas, creative and outside areas. By fostering independence and encouraging initiative at all times, the children learn through self-initiation and play in a safe, friendly and stimulating environment.

All teaching and learning is based around the government non-statutory document, Development Matters, and children work towards achieving the Early Learning Goals in the Prime and Specific Areas.
Teachers work closely with the children to ascertain and follow their interests, and so adapt the curriculum and learning to their specific needs. Short teaching inputs, group work, and one-to-one reading help ensure that the children are challenged and that the pace of learning is maintained.

Our learning

Who's your hero?

 

Over the next half term we are going to be learning about Superheroes.  We began last week with the Evil Villain visiting our classroom and leaving lots of clues everywhere.  We have been thinking about who it could be and how we can stop them.  Later in the term we will be finding out about and exploring the text of 'Supertato'.  

  

 

We will also be talking about how we can stay safe and be healthy. Please visit the link below for some tips on this.

We acted out The Bear Hunt using different materials for the grass, river, mud, snow and cave. We had great fun pretending to squelch through the mud and wade through then river!

For Chinese New Year we had a visitor in to tell us all about how she lived in china and how they celebrate New Year with lots of brightly coloured decorations

Friday Phonics 

 

Please join us every Friday from 2.40pm, for a short session to hear the sounds we have been learning that week.  You will be able to hear how the sounds are pronounced, learn the Jolly Phonics songs and see how we teach phonics so you can support your child at home.  In your child's book bag you would have had a copy of the Jolly Phonics actions.  

 

We will be recapping all of the sounds we have learnt so far and working on using these in our reading and writing by blending and segmenting.  We will also be learning some new  tricky words as part of our phonics sessions which we will also share with you in this session and will send these home in their book bags. 

 

 

We look forward to seeing you!
