This week in Birch class......

We have been really busy in Birch class this week.

Here are some examples of our exciting activities.

We have been practising our gymnastics skills with Mr Fisher. We invited our parents in to show them our routines and the skills we have learnt. 

The children were amazing.

Birch Class Gymnastics Demonstration

Welcome to Churchfield School!

In the Foundation Stage our aim is to provide the very best start for your child by developing all the skills they need to become independent learners.

 

We feel learning through play is important. We focus on all the areas of learning and development within the Early Years Foundation Stage which are Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED), Physical Development (PD) and Communication and Language (CL).Literacy Development (LD), Maths (MD), Knowledge and Understanding (UW) and Expressive Arts and Design (EAD).

 

At Churchfield we encourage children to become independent and curious learners and our environment is structured to reflect children’s interests. We have access to a fantastic outdoor area. Within each classroom the children have access to areas such as Role Play, Writing, Reading, Sand, Creative, Construction, Numeracy and Snack. In each area there are activities for the children to complete in order to consolidate and extend prior learning.

 

Assessment

We use Tapestry to record and share observations of the children's learning during their play. Each child has a secure account please login and check your child's progress and enjoy their learning journey with them. 

If you need a new login please speak to your class teacher. 

 

Volunteers

If you are a parent or friend of the school and would like to support the children we are always looking for volunteers, we especially like help with hearing children read, art, visits and topic work. If you are interested please speak to your class teacher.

 

Literacy

Our Literacy focus this half term will be reading sentences and writing words independently using the sounds we have learnt.

 

Here are some websites which will support your child’s learning.

Numeracy

In numeracy this half term we will be looking at number. This includes counting and ordering numerals and being able to use the language and skills needed for addition and subtraction equations.

Here are some websites which will support your child’s learning.

At Home

We change your child's reading book everyday if they have read at home. Please encourage your child to read as much as possible at home - magazines or books that you enjoy together at home can be recorded in their reading records too.
