Autumn term

This term our question is: What makes me amazing?

We will have lots of fun and exciting opportunities to answer this question through play during every session. Pictures of the children will be hung on our ‘I am amazing’ tree in the classroom, please feel free to come in and look at these at any time.

In the first half of the term we will be reading ‘Were going on a bear hunt’. We will be exploring the local environment, talking about our feelings and creating sensory story maps to develop our talk for writing skills.

In the second e half term we will be reading ‘Goldilocks and the three bears’. We will be exploring our senses, recognising ‘big, medium and small’ and talking about people who are special to us.


What We Do Each Day

Children have plenty of time to play each day. This gives them plenty of opportunity to explore the world around them, problem solve, make their own choices, develop social skills and much more. Our two year olds love to spend time outdoors where they can be active whilst exploring the environment. Each day, we spend time doing small group activities that help us develop important life skills such as how to get along with others, how to communicate effectively and how to become confident. We love to express ourselves through messy activities, songs, music and stories.

We change book bags on a Wednesday. 


Key Worker System

Key workers develop close relationships with children and their families to make sure needs are met and that children are able to make good progress. They help children to work towards their next steps and record their progress in their learning journey books. Key workers maintain a calm and nurturing environment for children to flourish. 


Communication and Language

Communication and Language is one of our Prime Areas of Learning in our Early Years Curriculum. We teach the three aspects of this, Speaking, Understanding and Listening and Attention throughout all of our adult directed and child initiated sessions. Communication and Language skills are important for learning across the whole curriculum so it is vital that we get this right for our children. 

If you would like to see the expectations for your child's Communication and Language skills please see the attached "Small Talk" document. 

Feel free to ask any member of the Early Years team if you have any questions.
