Spring Term 2020

Dear Parents/ Carers,


A very Happy New Year to you all, I hope you had a lovely Christmas break!


Our new topic for this term is People Who Help Us! We will be engaging in lots of imaginative role play around different occupations and discussing who helps them in their own lives. We will also be looking at a range of fiction and non-fiction books with the children around their occupations of interest. We would love any parent volunteers to come in and discuss their occupation 😊

We will also be learning about Chinese New Year using chopsticks, making lanterns, learning about the different animals and eating noodles!


Last term we focused on Phase 1 phonics, enabling children to differentiate between sounds. This term we will be continuing with phase 1 phonics; as well as lots of singing; but also beginning to look at phase 2 phonics. We will start by focusing on one letter a week, then adapting depending on what pace they need to go. Please read as much as possible to your child, this helps them consolidate letters and sounds that they are learning about at Nursery. Our next Parents Work Share morning in February will be focused on books and reading.


Physical Development is still extremely important this term. Children will continue to use a variety of tools/ medias to support their hand dexterity. Please continue partaking in fine motor activities at home whenever you can!


In Maths we will be revisiting numbers 1-10, some children will be learning to recite them independently, whilst others will be linking numeral to quantity and learning to represent numbers in a variety of ways. We will also be looking at mathematical language, describing shapes and sizes of objects as well as using positional language.


General reminders

Thank you for your continued support with cooking money, we have plenty of exciting things to make and bake this term J

If your child has a ‘wow moment’ at home or out somewhere please write it down on a ‘did you know’ slip and bring it in for us to share with the class 😊 If you need some more slips please let me know!



Many Thanks,


Miss Bourne & the EYFS Team
