EYFS Starfish and Hermit Crabs

Meet the EYFS Team

Spring 2 2024

Our topic is: Once Upon a Time


Summary of Learning

This week we have been learning the story of Chinese New Year and writing about parts of the story

using a full sentence with a capital letter and a full stop.

In Phonics we have continued revising all the Phase 2 and 3 GPCs and HRSWs that we have learned so far and have also learned to read the graphemes: /ar/ /ur/ /oo/ (moon) and /or/

as well as the Harder to Read and Spell Words: they, all and are.

In Maths we have continued finding, exploring and representing 6, 7 and 8. We have been making pairs of odd and even numbers, doubling to eight and combining two groups to make a whole.


Learning at home

Reading - We have sent home a new phonics book and a new library book for you to share at home. Please read every day and record your comments in your child’s reading record and return to school every day.

We expect at least four comments in your child’s reading record each week please.

Project Homework - After half term our new topic will be ‘Once Upon a Time’. If you would like you can create a story sack or story box about a traditional tale to share with your class. It should include a book and props to help you to tell the story. These could be puppets, soft toys, simple objects, dolls, outfits or masks.


Thank you! The EYFS Team
