EYFS Virtual Tour 2020-21
Due to current restrictions we are unable to offer our usual open event for EYFS parents. Instead we have arranged to meet via Zoom. Our open event will take place on Wednesday 6th January at 3:45pm and there will be an opportunity to meet the staff and to ask questions. You may find it useful to watch the video below in advance.
Let’s put on our capes and discover our superpowers as we search for an answer to the question, ‘What is a superhero?’ This half term, we’ll describe our favourite superheroes, create fact files, read a range of comic books and write our own. We will learn about real-life heroes such as the emergency services and heroes from the past such as Florence Nightingale. As part of this project, we’ll explore our senses of smell, touch, taste, hearing and sight and investigate the different body parts used. We’ll also test our superpowers by climbing, running, jumping and moving to music in PE. There will also be lots of opportunities for us to create superhero works of art.
Lots of superheroes in book and films wear a mask, a headband or a cape to give them an identity. Do you recognise any of these superheroes?
Can you design and make your own superhero mask? Here is a template to help you. https://www.printablee.com/post_printable-superhero-mask-cutouts_150537/ Don't forget to share your superhero creations on Class Dojo!!
Superheroes can come in all shapes and sizes. Have a look at this cute video where a few ordinary children become superheroes in their village, just by making a difference. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6r4QYYz0dSI
After a hard day being a Superhero, all heroes like to settle down and read a book. Here are some lovely Superhero books you can share and snuggle up with.
In F2 we encourage our children to share a story with an adult five times each week. This can be a few pages from a story book of your choice or via our online reading scheme Bug Club.
Practice the letter sounds taught in class to be able to read and write them.
Work on each child's individual next step.
This term in F2 our topic is Enchanted Woodland. We will be exploring what types of creatures live in the woods and how trees and plants grow. We will be building dens and having lots of fun using sticks for imaginative play and art. We are so lucky to have our Forest School area which will allow us to emmerse ourselves in our topic. I wonder what you will see when you go down to the woods?
