Beatrix Potter Class EYFS

 

 

Welcome to Beatrix Potter Class

Our teacher is Mrs Spavins and our TA is Miss Doherty

 

We are the EYFS class at Marden Vale and we love to learn through exploration! We have the pleasure of having 2 wonderful classrooms and a large outdoor garden where we are able to explore each day.

 

Throughout the year, we enjoy learning about a range of different topics and have fun learning with a mix of adult led sessions and continuous provision. 

The government have updated the Early Learning Goals and Development Matters for all schools in 2021. We use these to support our planning and ensure that the children have the best start to school possible. Please find these documents below.

This term, the children have been busy learning the story We're Going On A Bear Hunt in our talk for writing sessions. We have really enjoyed learning this story and retelling it in our own words. We all had a go at making up our own stories too!

RE- In RE, we have been learning about the creation story. See our drawings of the creation story below.

In Maths, we have been working on learning our number bonds.

Autumn Term 1

 

In Term 1, we learnt lots about different nursery rhymes and songs. We have also enjoyed sharing our favourite stories with the children. The children revisited their phase 1 phonics learning from Nursery and also learnt the phase 2 sounds. This term, we enjoyed creating self portraits, tasting new fruits and vegetables and going out for our outdoor learning sessions each Monday! 

Outdoor learning

We love learning outside! This term, we have learnt about birds and nests and explored what Autumn looks like. We have been on an autumn walk to discover signs of Autumn and found pine cones, conkers, red, yellow, orange and brown leaves! 

Road Safety 2021

This term, we learnt about being safe near the roads. We dressed up as lollipop men/ladies and practiced walking across the road safely on our pretend crossing in our garden. 

PE with Mrs Murden

Each week, on a Tuesday, we have PH sports in to teach us PE. We love trying new things and learning to move in different ways. Mrs Murden loves to play different games with us!
