What we are doing in school this term: Spring 2107
In the Early Years our learning is organised into half termly topics. The topic is then planned around the 7 areas of learning. The 7 areas of learning are made up of prime and specific areas.
There are 3 prime areas i.e. Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
The 4 specific areas are Mathematics, Literacy, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
The topics that we choose in the Early Years are usually based on your children’s interests e.g. animals, traditional tales, nursery rhymes etc.
Our topic this term is ‘Healthy Living’ and ‘Traditional Stories’. This topic will be further broken down into weekly topics: Food, Different ways to keep healthy, Exercising, People who help keep us healthy.
