Penguin's Forest School Day-Friday

We would like to welcome our new EYFS children and their families to the beginning of their exciting learning journey at Palace Wood Primary School! 

This term in EYFS we will be focusing on getting to know each other and learning our school routines.  During their "exploring time", the children will have the opportunity to explore, learn and play in both Penguin and Elephant classrooms as well as our outside classroom.   Our topic for Term 1 is "All About Me".  Throughout the term we will be thinking about how we have changed since we were babies, our families and homes, likes and dislikes and what makes us unique.  We will explore our emotions through the story of "The Colour Monster".  We will also be reading the stories "What Makes Me, a Me?", "We Are All Wonders" and "All Are Welcome". In maths we will be learning about numbers to 10 and beyond, exploring patterns, matching and sorting, and comparing amounts, size, mass and capacity.  We will also be starting our Read Write Inc. phonics learning.

Book change will take place every Friday.  Your child will bring home a wordless book to encourage their story telling and speaking skills, as well as a "sharing" book for you to read and enjoy together.
