Autumn 1 Theme: It’s a small world EYFS Parent Overview Autumn 1 2019 It’s a small world!
PE will start after the October half term – our PE day is a Friday.
Please make sure your child brings their P.E kit in with them at the start of each half term. We will send kit home should it get dirty and at the end of each half term.
We are working towards making the children independent in many areas as possible. At home you can help your child to get changed independently into PE kits and school uniform.
We would like to encourage all the children to drink water throughout the day and we would like to request that your child brings in a water bottle to school labelled with their name.
We warmly welcome you to record any significant milestones your child has reached at home. These can be recorded on the WOW moments sent home which we share and celebrate with the class.

Initially, the focus is on pre-phonics skills, using the Government scheme of Letters & Sounds, which
provides a wide variety of fun activities as a solid introduction to core phonics listening skills.
We then begin to introduce the individual letter sounds. We use Read Write Inc or RWI as our school phonics scheme. It provides a systematic approach to learning the sounds that support reading.
We really encourage children to practise their phonics at home. We have put links below that will support you and your child with learning their sounds. Please use every opportunity to allow your child to practise, whether it be sounding out road signs, menus, TV guide to ensure they are accessing as much reading as possible. Here are some tricky words to practice with your child as well; Tricky Words

Lesson structure in EYFS:
New vocabulary is introduced and practised on the carpet.
Children will engage in a ‘Talk Task’ on the carpet where they watch the class teacher model the skills and vocabulary.
Over the course of the week children will work in a variety of ways, including: adult led groups, 1:1 teaching situations, as well as be able to apply their knowledge independently.
We use a wide rage of manipulatives to support Maths Mastery, the most commonly used is
Numicon. Numicon are plastic shapes that can be combined in a wide variety of ways to
support: pattern making, addition, subtraction, multiplication and many more!
