During the first half of the autumn term our topic will be: Getting To Know You



Our current topic is "Getting To Know You." 
You can see our curriculum map below: 


Helpful Websites:

BBC Nursery Rhymes : A great website for singing and listening to classic nursery rhymes. 

Phonics Play : A website with more information about phonics as well as interactive games you can play with your child. 

Topmarks Maths : Games and interactive resources for counting, ordering numbers, matching amounts and much more! 

Bug Club : Every child in our school has their own login username and password so that they can access teacher-set reading books to read at home. Our school code is ando. Please speak to your class teacher if you are unsure of your child's login information. 

Crickweb : EYFS maths and literacy games. 

Letters and Sounds : A website with further information about phonics teaching. Interactive games you can play with your child to improve reading and letter recognition. 

To help your child at home you can: 
- Count with your child to 100. 
- Ask them which number comes after another: What's one more than 17?
- Include maths into your daily routines: I have 5 oranges and 3 apples. How many do I have altogether?
- Help your child to begin forming the numbers. 
- Recognise and name shapes in your home. Show your child how to describe the shapes: It has four corners and four sides. 
- Sing counting songs. 
- Practice your child's key words with them. 
- Listen to your child read their book and record your experiences in the home learning diary. 
- Read stories together and talk about the characters, setting and plot. 
- Sing nursery rhymes and play rhyming games. 
- Help your child to form the letters and ask them which sounds the letters make.
