YEARLY CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

 

 

OUR LEARNING JOURNEY...

WHAT DO I KNOW ABOUT ME?

September brings the start of a brand new school year! EYFS have enjoyed meeting new friends and exploring the setting. For our topic this half term, we have found out about each others family, our likes and dislikes, our bodies, our senses and our unique qualities. Have a look below at some of our learning so far!

MATHS IN ACTION!

In EYFS, we have made a fantastic start on our mathematical journey. Here are some pictures of what we have been getting up to!

MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK

Children in EYFS had a fabulous time joining in with the various activities we had on offer to learn about how to keep our bodies and minds healthy. We even had a visit from Pet Encounter Cumbria!

WHO MIGHT LIVE IN THE DEEP DARK WOOD?

For our Autumn 2 topic we are exploring the world around us! We will be looking at the change in seasons and what some animals do in Winter. We will also be exploring where Father Christmas lives and how it compares to where we live. To start our topic we ventured into the deep dark forest to hunt for the Gruffalo! We found out about all the different animals that live in the forest as well as using our senses to smell, touch and listen.
