How will our children learn in F2?

As stated in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework ‘Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active and through creative and critically thinking which takes place both indoors and outside’. Our children are provided with a range of learning opportunities and activities within our setting where they ‘will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through seven areas of learning and development’. These are:

Prime Areas

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Specific Areas

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

The EYFS is flexible which enables learning opportunities to follow the children’s needs and interests.

PE: Tuesday Morning

The Setting

Autumn 1

The children have settled in well to the Foundation Stage and are enjoying exploring the indoor and outdoor environment. The children have been using talk for writing picture maps to recall instructions for making a cake, sandwich and scarecrow.

Children have loved learning a harvest song which they are going to perform for KS1 during a Friday assembly.

In maths the children have been learning all about numbers and 2D shapes. They have explored the different ways the numbers can be represented e.g. numicon, numerals, number blocks and more.

Outside, the children have been enjoying lots of our new resources. They have been promoting their gross motor skills on the new bike track and water pump, improving their fine motor skills on the weaving board and exploring the new and improved mud kitchen.

We have been working very hard learning new sounds in phonics. We have enjoyed our new phonics scheme ‘Sounds Write’, which teaches the children the skills of blending, segmenting and phoneme manipulation.
