Welcome to EYFS

Welcome to Quarter 3

Our learning in Quarter 3 is based on Traditional Tales. We will be enjoying lots of texts of traditional tales, including The 3 Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, The Gingerbread Man, Little Red Hen and Jack and the Beanstalk. We will be using our texts to order and retell stories to develop our vocabulary and language skills, learn repeated refrains, writing and acting out the characters' roles. 
We will be making maps to show the journeys the characters take, and learning about positions and directions. We will be doing lots of art work, using different materials and techniques, cooking and listening and playing music based on the stories
In maths, we will be counting, sorting and measuring in lots of different ways.
We will be learning about the Christian Festival of Easter, and why it is special for Christians. We will be learning about Easter symbols, and how Easter is celebrated. We will also be learning about the Hindu Festival of Holi, and how Holi is celebrated in Hindu homes. We are going to be very busy!


Counting carefully and finding numbers up to 20.



Our learning in quarter 2 has been based on the theme of Winter.  We have shared a range of winter based texts including: 'One Snowy Night' by Nick Butterworth, 'Stickman' and 'The Gruffalo's Child' by Julia Donaldson and 'Snowflakes' by Cerrie Burrell, as well as non-fiction texts.  We have used these to learn about winter, shadows, floating and sinking, freezing and melting,  weather, how to keep warm and a range of other experiences.

We will be finishing this quarter by learning about Chinese New Year and celebrations.

Going on a journey through the woodlands, making story sticks to remind us where we have been (linked to Stickman's journey and Incarnation).



Team challenge to build Percy a bed big enough for all the animals that visited him.


Investigating freezing and melting by making ice baubles and observing the changes throughout the day.





Welcome to Quarter 1

We have started our quarter basing our learning around colour.  We have shared the stories of 'Elmer' and 'The Colour Monster'.

Using these texts, we have learnt about emotions, how we are all unique but equal, and all about colours!



There has been lots of excellent mark making and reading in our new reading den too!







Tapestry 


Upon starting at Kendall all children are created a personal online Learning Journal where a member of staff will record photos and observations which are in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage. Tapestry is hosted in the UK on secure servers. You will be given your personal log in to your child’s account when you provide the school with your email address. You can view their observation and photos, and also add your own comments to observations and even add your own observations and photos of what your child does outside our school to share with a member of staff.
