Little Elvers look forward to an exciting half term of learning all about ‘Myself’. We are going to start with our feet and shoes by answering the Big Question – Whose Shoes? 

We are going to sing songs and hear stories all about shoes and spend time matching and counting shoes too. Gibbs in Ely are going to come and visit us so that we can learn all about how to measure our feet for new shoes.

We will get to know each other’s names and faces by playing lots of games and finding out about each other. We will also get to know the environment around us by exploring and finding out where all the toys and equipment belongs.

We use the Early Years Curriculum to ensure that your child will feel confident in making their next steps across 7 areas of learning which are:

  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Personal and Social Development
  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

We will keep you updated on the progress they are making at the end of the half term through sharing their electronic Learning Journal. We will share photos, experiences and next steps in this. We will share instructions later in the term on how you can access that.

We are working hard across the school on writing, which also means supporting our youngest children with early writing and mark making skills. This doesn’t mean pencils and paper, but lots of talk and physical play; we’ll be sharing more information about how we do this in Little Elvers and you can support at home, later in the term.
