Sticky Knowledge Spring 2023
Every Wednesday we have an enrichment day with Reception. Throughout the children's time within EYFS we aim to provide them with as many enrichment opportunities as possible. We hold weekly activities such as cooking, arts and crafts, outdoor learning and library visits. Throughout the year we hope to add much more to our curriculum, ensuring children get a breadth of experiences. These enrichment opportunities may change and are dependent upon the children's interests.
Spring Enrichment Timetable
During this term we will using lots of good quality texts to help us with our Literacy lessons.
We will be using 'Supertato' to help us sequence a story and re-tell a story.
We will be using 'Real Superheroes' to help us with a recount. We will be discussing and talking about what happens when the police, fire and doctor / nurse come to visit us!
We will also write letters to our key workers.
Children in Nursery will be recognising and naming digits (1-5) and applying the cardinal principle to groups of objects to 5. They will have an awareness of mathematical symbols and solve real-life maths problems with numbers up to 5.
Children in Nursery will accurately count items to 5 with one-to-one correspondence and verbally count to 10 aloud, with not all teen numbers in sequence. They will copy and continue a pattern e.g. ABAB and know that groups can be created both equally and unequally, recognising and identifying this with increased reasoning.
Shape, Space and Measure:
Children in Nursey will discuss the features of a familiar route and represent these using detailed marks. They will identify 2D shapes circle, square, rectangle and triangle and start seeing shapes within shapes e.g the triangle and square in a house. Children will be able to discuss events with an adult using the terminology today, yesterday and tomorrow and are able to begin comparing elements of measure.
Children will study each of these topics through group led sessions as well as within their play, discovering and having hands on experiences within the provision.
This term we will learn some new sounds / codes. We will look at letter formation, writing and reading words with the following sounds:
