Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
Welcome to our Waterbeach School Early Years Foundation Stage Page.
We are looking forward to a very busy Spring term and welcoming Miss Couchman to the Early Years team as Leopard Class Teacher. We wish Mrs Rogers all the best for her maternity leave and will let you know the exciting news once the baby arrives.
Our first topic this term is Superheroes. For this we will be learning what makes a Superhero as well as what makes a Villain. We will be reading several books from the ‘Supertato’ series as well as other Superhero themed books. We will be finishing the topic with a Superhero and Villain day on Friday 5th February.
We will also be introducing ‘Superhero Writers’ which is a writing initiative which continues into Key Stage 1. We will explain this in more detail at our virtual Writing Café which will be published on our YouTube channel during the Spring term. You will be receiving more information about this soon.
After Superheroes, we will begin our second topic in the Spring Term which is On the Farm. For our Farm topic we have many exciting activities planned. We will be reading the traditional story of ‘The Little Red’ as well as stories from the ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ series. We will complete lots of activities about the farm as well as learning about animals which live on the farm. This will be followed by learning all about chicks and having ‘Living Eggs’ arriving in the classroom. We will learn all about life cycles as we wait for and watch the chicks hatch. We will then care for the chicks until they are collected to be taken back to the farm at the end of term.
