Foundation 1 2020 - 2021

What a fun filled half term!

Here are some snippets of what we have been up to.

We have been busy making friends

  

We have learnt all about Georgie Bears rules. 

We have loved exploring autumn. 

 

We have been artists creating transient art, leaf printing and exploring autumanal colours through paint.

  

In maths we have counted, measured, matched and weighed.

We read 'Dear Zoo' and talked about just 1, we all had to choose just 1 animal and talk about it. Was it spotty, stripy, long or short?

We played pass the parcel and set up our first maths table. Each layer revealed another way of representing 1. The children helped display it and added to it throughout the fortnight. 

For number two we read Simon Sock and learnt all about pairs. We went on a sock hunt, we copied sock paterns, we even measured each other using socks! Mrs Makinson was 11 socks long!

  

Our favourite was when we learnt all about the little red hen. We talked about resilience and how she never gave up, she 'did it all by herself'. The children confidently retold the story of the little red hen using the story map we made in lesson time. Some children have videod their stories and we have uploaded them to ILD. 

We ended our term on a high by making our own bread. Delicious.

First we wrote our own shopping lists then we mixed and stirred and baked our own bread. 

  

The best bit of course was tasting it! Scrumptious.

We hope you have a wonderful break and we look forward to seeing you all after half term for spooky week!

EYFS Framework

 

At St George’s we have taken the opportunity to become ‘Early Adopters’ of the New EYFS framework as of September 2020. The new framework is designed to:

  • Improve outcomes at 5 years old for all children
  • Improve language development for all children
  • Reduce workload for teachers and childcare workers.

In the coming months we will provide parent information sessions to enable parents to fully understand the new EYFS framework and Development Matters. In the meantime, if you wish to read more information the DfE have published the below documents:
