Welcome to FS1!
We are a class that really enjoy learning through play. We have a great classroom with lots of fun resources to help us learn. Our Foundation Stage team carefully plan teaching and learning to take account of children’s individual needs.
We are part of the Early Years Foundation Stage and our activities are planned around the 7 areas of learning. We have a different topic focus each term.
We always have high expectations for good behaviour and working happily together in our unit and this is supported by our Five Finger rules
Here is an overview of the coming term and what we have planned for your children to enjoy!
We are introducing some new dinosaur characters to help our children to think and talk about what they are learning.
Characteristics of effective learning:
Our Achievosaurs help children become aware of the different ways we can learn and how they can use different learning styles to achieve. Giving children language to explain the skills they use when learning, and encouraging young minds to learn through mistakes and problem solving, is key to a growth mind-set.
Spring Term 2018
During the whole term our topic focus will be: Animals
We will be beginning the term finding out about dinosaurs before learning more about animals we traditionally have as pets, farm animals and jungle animals. We will be learning names of baby animals and animal homes as well as comparing habitats and countries that animals originate from.
This term we will also be celebrating and finding out about Chinese new year and the Easter Story.
Our book list is;
As mentioned in the news letter we are also very excited to be welcoming our own dinosaur into the class. All children will have the opportunity to bring him home for a sleepover and it would be lovely if you could post any pictures to share on twitter @Haddon_Primary.
We look forward to a fun packed term with lots of learning.
