We asked some of the current Early Years children to talk about their experiences and what they have enjoyed doing this year. We hope this will encourage conversations about the topics we will be learning and help to settle any worries about coming to school.

Welcome to the Early Years Page

 

It has been so lovely to talk to so many of you on the phone. Please expect another call soon, this will now be weekly while school is closed. 

 

During this lockdown, we will upload an overview each week detailing our new topic. The overview will include suggestions of activities linked to the different areas of learning that we cover in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Underneath the overview, we will always upload resources that you may want to use. Please don't feel like you need to print all of them out.

 

If you have any questions, or would like to share any photos of work with us, please don't hesitate to contact us on earlyyears@greatberry.essex.sch.uk If you could put the subject of the email as FAO and the class, so that we know which teacher the email is intended for. 

 

Once again, thank you so much for your continued support during these times. 

Stay safe and keep smiling, 

The Early Years Team

EYFS Maths Meeting

EYFS Lunch Meeting

Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage!

 

We hope you all had a lovely Easter break with your families. We will be uploading weekly overviews onto this page with the topics we will be learning and ideas of activities you can complete at home.  Please do not feel pressure to complete all of the activities which are suggested. If you do decide to complete the activities, we are happy for this to be in any form whether this be in the home-school workbook or on paper.

 

This half-term our topics will include Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Gingerbread Man and The Three Little Pigs. Every week we will upload a Weekly Overview, which will give you an insight into some of the activities we will be doing in school that week.

 

Homework books will be given out on a Thursday. They will need to be returned by the following Tuesday. Ideas for the homework will be available on the Weekly Overviews. Each week please give feedback on how your child found the activities, by leaving a short comment with their homework. Please note that Homework books are different to the red books shown in the parent-teacher meetings and now have a winter picture on the front.

 

Each colour team will have a Show and Tell date once, each half term. The show and tell must be inexpensive and we cannot take responsibility for the loss or damage of the item. This should be something of your child’s own choice, and could be a favourite toy/book/model, certificate of achievement, photo, something of interest that they have found. Etc.

 

The colour group dates are as follows:

This will be updated as soon as we are all back at school.

 

Keep checking back on this page for more updates and to see some of our brilliant work.

 

Please note that jewellery is not allowed to be worn in school. This includes hoop earrings, bracelets, anklets and necklaces. Only small studs are allowed, although these have to be removed on PE days.

 

Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!
