In the EYFS, there are 7 areas of learning which form the core of all that we teach in the classroom. These areas are split into the 'Prime' and 'Specific' areas.
Physical Development (PD)
Communication and Language (CL)
Personal Social Emotional Development (PSED)
Understanding the world (UTW)
Expressive arts and design (EAD)
Some helpful links for parents...
In order to support the learning of your child across each of these areas, there is a document which explains the types of activities your child may be doing to demonstrate their ability in these areas. This document is called 'What to expect, when' and is available at the following web address:
Ruth Miskin are showing daily Read Write Inc phonics lessons on their YouTube channel. Set 1 sounds are at 9:30am, Set 2 at 10am and Set 3 at 10:30am. If your child is secure in their Set 1 sounds they can start the Set 2. The link to the YouTube channel is below. The videos are available for 24 hours with a new sound uploaded daily.
During their music lessons with Mrs Gregory-White, the children have been learning songs to go with the 'Jack and the Beanstalk' story. The link below will take you to these songs and stories, as well as others for the children to explore.
Herts for Learning have written a blog post on different web cams that the children can access to see animals and different parts of the world. These could be good for helping your child develop in their communication and language as they discuss what is happening with you or someone else in the household.
