Welcome to Early Years Foundation Stage.
We are very excited to welcome all our new children into school for the Autumn Term.
It has been a very strange year, but we are so happy to have all our children back at All Saints. We want to assure you that we will be doing everything we can to settle children into their new routines and keep them safe.

Nursery Rhymes and Owls
Our topic this half term is 'Nursery Rhymes' and then we will move on to 'Owls'. We will be learning lots of different nursery rhymes, singing along and adding actions . Later in the half term we will be learning about owls, what they are, how they fly, when they are awake, what they feel like etc.
We will be reading the story 'Wow Said the Owl!', and learning about the colours of the rainbow when the owl stays awake during the day time and sees lots of colours he has never seen before.
Please see our class Knowledge Organiser for more information about our topic and activities that you can complete at home.
In Literacy we will be reading one key text in the second half of this term. This is 'Wow Said the Owl!'. We will be talking about the story, re-telling it using a story map and making up our own version of the story. While reading we will look at the different colours in the rainbow and talk about the difference between night time and daytime. We will also learn new words to describe what the owl looks like, and encourage children to share ideas about the story.
We will be sharing the text in our key groups and then following on our learning through activities in our continuous provision both inside and outside - including owl models, paintings, number work and story telling..
We will also be focusing on recognising our names and making marks.
We will be encouraging children to join in with stories and rhymes, as well as speaking to others and listening to stories.
In Maths we will be counting with numbers up to 10 and joining in with number songs and rhymes.
We will also be using the language of size and comparing the size of objects.
Every child in Nursery has a reading pack. Inside is a story for you to share together. It is a great opportunity to spend quiet time together at the end of a busy day. When reading, encourage your child to join in with repeated parts of the story and to add actions. When you have finished, ask lots of questions about the story such as 'who is in the story?', 'where is the story set?' and 'what happened in the story?'. We will change your reading book each week, please bring in your reading pack every day.
In Nursery we take part in daily phonics sessions - these involve learning new songs and rhymes, listening to and making different sounds with our bodies and voices and finding words that rhyme.
This half term children will begin taking home a 'home learning' book. Each week there will be a song, activity, story or game to play and talk about at home. New home learning will be given out on a Friday, please return by the following Thursday.
