News from EyFS

 We had lots of fun celebrating Chinese New Year. We made an enormous dragon mask at the beginning of the week, Chinese lanterns and practised Chinese numbers using calligraphy. We then used our mask to perform a dance in PE and used chopsticks to eat noodles!


PE is on a Thursday this term.

Please make sure reading records are written in when you have read your child's phonics book with them at home. 

We visit the library on a Monday with Mrs Williams, if you would like to change your library sharing book then make sure you pop it in your book bag in time.

The Curriculum

The EYFS recognises that children need to be able to use concrete experiences to provide the building blocks for their learning. Based on this, the learning ethos behind EYFS encourages a mix of play-based and adult led learning. 

Here are some documents you might find useful to have a look at to help your understanding of the EYFS curriculum and how best to support your child in their first year at Badsey First School.
