Spring Term in EYFS

We begin the Spring term in Foundation with a focus on the seasons. We will be learning to recognise the different seasons and make comparisons about them. We will be reading the book ‘Tree’ by Britta Teckentrup to support our learning in this area.

We also look forward to reading the traditional tale ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and enjoying lots of different activities based on this story. During the term we will have a focus on rhyme and poetry and incorporate as many of the children’s interests into future learning as well.


Other Information

We will be sending library books home each week on a Tuesday for you to share, enjoy and discuss together at home.

Sometimes we’ll ask the children to research a topic at home and share what they have found out with their peers in school.

 If you have any questions or concerns please do speak to a member of the Foundation team and we’ll do our best to help.

We look forward to a busy and fun-filled term.
