Class FS - Miss Key (FS1) / Mrs Arnold (FS2)

Welcome to Foundation Stage web page.

What are we learning? - Autumn 1 Term

Who lives in a house like this?

As Investigators we will ... be finding out about materials. We will be looking at how a home is built and which materials can be used. We will investigate what makes a good building material and what doesn't. We will also be looking at festivals including Harvest, Diwali and bonfire night.

As Readers we will ... be learning our phonics using Read Write Inc methods. We will look at different information books around castles and look at how people lived in medieval times. We will look at stories such as Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and Knight School and create an information booklet.

As Writers we will ... be developing our handwriting skills with handwriting specialist Martin Harvey. We will write information text, stories and lists.

As Mathematicians we will ... learn to count and recognise numbers 1-20, learn language for one more, one less, sort coins and we will begin to add amounts up using 1ps. We will learn the names of common 2D and 3D shapes and their properties and recognise and repeat patterns.

As Scientists we will ... learn about materials and sort them by their properties including waterproof, hard, soft, rough and smooth.

As Artists and Designers we will ... look at how we create our art work using different media. We will be creating our own life cycles and use different media to make moving caterpillars and collage butterflies.

We will celebrate our learning by ... inviting our parents to a 'Carve your own' pumpkin event and a medieval banquet.
