Welcome to the EYFS Class page. Your teachers this year will be Mrs Oliver and Ms Forrest. In EYFS, our aim is to provide a warm and caring environment whereby your child has a love for learning that will continue throughout their education. We will ensure your child has the best start to their learning experience at Cayton School. We will be giving your child all the skills they will need to be a confident and independent learner, it will be a a time for your child to shine. We plan our activities around your child and ensure they are at the heart of everything we do. We cannot wait to see what the year ahead brings and we are really looking forward to sharing all these precious moments with you.
What are we learning about?
This half term there are a number of themes we will explore with in class which are: Travel, Transport, Queens Jubilee, life cycles, and plants. We will explore a number of different books to support the children's learning. Such as The very Hungry caterpillar, Here we are, Oi! Get off my Train, The Queen's Knickers and A Walk in London.
Within literacy the children will be exploring different texts and books to begin to know the difference between different types of texts (fiction, nonfiction, poetry)
We will be beginning to make inferences to answer a question beginning 'Why do you think…?' in a picture book that has been read to them, where answer is clearly signposted. Within writing children will be continuing to build on knowledge of letter sounds to build words in writing. We will be encouraging lots of writing in play and encouraging them to use familiar words in their writing. Children will be beginning to write a simple sentence/caption may include a full stop.
