Dear parents / carers,
Welcome to EYFS at Chalfont Valley. In EYFS, the children are supported to become independent learners. The learning environment is set up to promote self discovery, exploration and curiosity towards learning. Children are encouraged to value kindness, help each other, take turns and share. We believe that this will help develop a strong and positive sense of themselves and form good relationships.
Children are encouraged to make good learning choices every day and this is balanced by teacher focused groups across the EYFS curriculum. Homework will be given out on a Thursday for reading, writing and numbers. In addition, children should be reading at home every day.
Our theme this term is building and construction and our three texts linked to this theme are: The Three Little Pigs, Hansel and Gretel and Jack & the Beanstalk. We will be looking at features of traditional tales, characters, setting and recounts. Our maths focus will be number bonds, securing numbers to 20, addition to 10 and subtraction on a number line.
Art will cover mark making, salt dough, papier mache and making biscuits for our Hansel and Gretel house. The Science focus will be materials investigation focussing on staying safe at home.
Pop in and see us!
