In 2021 we began a new EYFS curriculum. This has allowed us to reimagine our topics and really think about exciting and engaging ways to promote learning. Our new topics are;​​​​​​

A Place Called Home

Explorers

Minibeasts

Once Upon a Time

Below, you will find lots of photographs of what we have been up to each term along with our curriculum documents and knowledge organisers.

Autumn Term 2022

It has been a very exciting start to the school year. This term is all about starting school, our feelings, how we grow, celebrations, houses and homes and Christmas!

Below you will find our curriculum and some photographs of what we have been up to this term. 

 

 

The Colour Monster

Starting school can leave us with a lot of mixed emotions. We used the Colour Monster story to help us work these through. Here is some of our lovely work.

When I Grow Up

We looked at how people change over time and thought about all the skills we had learned since we were a baby. This made us think about all of the wonderful things we may do in our lives and what we want to be when we grow up. 

Our Family

We loved talking about our families and listening to the experiences we have at home. We used pebbles to create some modern artwork of those who live in our house. 

Jasper's Beanstalk

After learning how humans grow over time, we started thinking about the natural world. We read Jasper's Beanstalk and learned all about what plants need to grow. We then planted our own beans and kept a bean diary to observe the changes! 

The Great Outdoors 

We love to spend time in our outdoor area, here are some photos of the fun we have had this term. 

Harvest Festival

We have been reading the stories 'Oliver's Vegetables' and 'The Little Red Hen to learn more about harvest. 

We looked at where our food comes from and created some lovely prints using potatoes, carrots and parsnips. 

We had lots of fun baking bread, just like the Little Red Hen! We were very helpful and worked as a team to bake together, unlike the characters in the story!

It's Halloween!

We LOVED learning about Halloween and having lots of spooky fun this week!

Remember, remember the 5th of November ...

Here are our firework pictures. We used chalks on black paper to create our artwork. 

Happy Diwali!

Our next celebration was Diwali. We read a story called 'A Gift for Amma' and enjoyed exploring Indian artefacts, We also learned all about diwali, the Indian festival of light. Here are some photographs of our week. 

Where do we live? 

We looked at our local area and familiar places. We used google maps to find our houses and loved taking a virtual stroll down the street. We then used our design skills to draw and build our own houses using construction materials. These are some of our finished creations. 

The Jolly Postman

We looked at the story of the Jolly Postman and found out that each house in the world has an address! We enjoyed sorting the letters into the correct houses and this inspired us to write our own. We made sure to add our own stamps and addresses to the envelopes before posting them into our classroom post box. 

Posting Our Letters

Once we had collected all of our letters together, we took a trip to the local post box. We enjoyed talking about the information we could see. We were even lucky enough to see a postal van and a lady sending Christmas cards all over the world!

IT'S CHRISTMAS!!!!!

Christmas is always a special time at Kingsley Primary school, with crafts, parties, nativities and pantomimes! Here are some photos of our celebrations. 

Teaching children to stay safe online is a huge priority at Kingsley Primary. Please share the following poster with your child.
