Welcome back and a Happy New Year to all of our families.
Though times remain a little challenging and still quite different for us all, we will do our very best to ensure all children continue to have the best start to their school life.
As we welcome lots of new children this term, we would like to assure you that as always here at Rosehill we remain committed to doing our very best for your children, working in partnership with you.
If you have any concerns please call school or message us via the Class Dojo and we will get back to as soon as we can.
EYFS stands for Early Years Foundation Stage and is the standard set for education, teaching, learning and care of 0 to 5-year-olds.
The EYFS not only sets out expected developmental milestones in the seven Areas of Learning and Development as well as developmental links, but also supports those working with EYFS age children in providing the correct support, provisions, and learning environment to best enable children to thrive and develop as well as be happy and healthy!
All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS and work towards the goals of the seven areas of EYFS - including childminders, preschools, nurseries and reception classes.
The EYFS is divided up into Seven Areas of Learning and Development, which are:
We plan our curriculum to cover all of these areas, but also and equally important we personalise our curriculum to meet the needs of children specifically in our school.
This half term term our topics are 'All About Me' and 'Keeping Healthy'- please look out for our Curriculum News for more details.
Phonics - Phase 1
The children will be learning how to listen very carefully especially at group and story times. We will be teaching them lots of new vocabulary, especially through carefully planned stories, and encouraging them to speak with growing confidence.
We will be focusing on learning about number through a range of fun and exciting activities, both indoors and outdoors. The children will learn how to tell you 'how many' and begin to recognise number patterns. We will post ideas on the dojo to help at home.
