2023! Happy New Year and welcome back to school.
In EYFS we have a bespoke curriculum for the children in our school which progresses each term towards the children achieving the Early Learning Goals (ELG’s). We have overarching themes which we can predict will occur and we can teach, i.e. festivals and celebrations, seasonal changes, plant growth as well as other topics which 4-5year old children are often interested in such as ‘People who help up’ (doctors, nurses, firefighters, etc), dinosaurs, superheroes and much more. Each group of children are different (which is what makes being a teacher so much fun) and we like to tailor our curriculum to incorporate their interests which in turn increases their engagement with their learning.
We use an online learning journey to record ‘WOW’ moments and share what we have been doing in class with parents and carers at home. We welcome parents and carers to share WOW moments and key interests for their child with school (either through conversation or on Tapestry) so that we can incorporate these into our planning.
We look forward to working with you this year and helping your children to learn and grow in many ways.
Our class bear, Suza (named by the children) comes home with a child from our class each week for displaying one or more of the school’s gospel values. These values are kindness, courage, servant-hearted, generosity, and patience. You can choose to enjoy having the bear at your house for the weekend and return it to school on Monday, or longer and return by the following Friday. We ask that you upload photographs and videos to your child’s Tapestry account detailing the adventures the bear has had with your child. We will then be able to share these on the board with the children in class.
What will Suza bear get up to in 2023?
