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: Thursday afternoon

Floorbooks: Friday morning

Drop in session for parents/carers Tuesday and Thursday mornings 8.20am-8.40am.

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 retelling traditional tales, they especially enjoyed making and tasting porridge for Goldilocks. We have investigating the changes in Autumn and finding out about Harvest Festival.

The children have enjoyed designing and helping to make our outdoor environment more inviting. We now have a new mud pit and garage and car wash for the bikes. We are awaiting the arrival of our brand new planters and are looking forward to planting fruit and vegetables which will be guarded by the scarecrows that we have created.

Autumn 2

The children have enjoyed exploring the indoor and outdoor environment further, especially helping to create our new vegetable patch and scarecrow to scare the birds away!

We have used talk for writing to explore the stories, The Little Red hen, The Owl Babies and The Gruffalo, where the children enjoyed retelling the story using actions. The children have sequenced the stories, made character puppets and produced some fantastic writing. We have even made our own bread and Gruffalo crumble!

The children have been learning through a range of experiences how to find one more than a number and recording it as a number sentence.

We have explored the names and properties of 2D and 3D shapes and have used these to make our own models, patterns and pictures.
