Nursery & Reception - Pixies, Sprites and Unicorns

EYFS Autumn Term 2017

Dear Parents/ Carers

Welcome back! We have a busy half term with children settling in and learning their new classroom routines, making new friends and exploring new learning experiences.

Our teaching team include:

Pixies: Miss Mead, Miss Smith and Miss Curran

Sprites: Miss Dempster, Miss Jackson and Mrs Venables

Unicorns: Miss Harris, Mr Vullo and Miss Coggin

Our topic this half term is Bears.

We are reading various stories related to bears i.e - We Are Going on a Bear Hunt, This is the Bear and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Children will be asked to bring in their own bears for show and tell and the topic will be ending with a teddy bears picnic.

We will be celebrating Harvest by reading The Little Red Hen /The Little Red Hen Makes Pizza. The children are going to make pizza, where they will be following instructions, applying early mathematical skills and encouraging speaking and listening.

The second part of the term we will be reading Meg and Mog where the children will be role playing different stories learning about good and bad characters and applying early reading and writing skills.

PE Sessions:

Sprites- Monday and Thursday

Unicorns- Monday and Wednesday

Please ensure that your children have a water bottle with their name on, and that all clothing is named. For Pixie class, please ensure your child as a spare change of clothes.

Thank you

The Early Years Team
