Your teacher is Miss Rietzler and teaching assistants are Miss Bunn and Mrs Cela.

Here is our curriculum map of skills for Autumn Term 1, Our first topic is My World.

Make sure to check out what  your child has been up to on their online learning books!

We started this term by reading the colour monster, talking about our different feelings and learning how to express them. We have also  looked at our world and families, where we explored similarities and differences between us all. Recently we have learnt all about harvest through exploring different fruits and vegetables and we have started looking at the changes that occur in autumn.

In literacy we have started to explore different texts and there key features. At Peartree Spring we use the Monster Phonics Systematic Synthetic Phonics programme. The initial sounds we will be looking at are SAT-PIN, the children have been doing brilliantly.

In maths we have focused on numbers to 5, counting and recognising different values using 1:1 correspondence.

We ask that PE kit are in school all week in case we have extra sessions. We are focusing on gross motor skills using different parts of the body, including balance and control. Outdoor trainers are also required all week so that the children can use the equipment outside.


Here are some pictures of our lovely environment here at Peartree Spring!

The EYFS curriculum is split into 7 areas; 3 Prime areas and 4 Specific areas:

  • Prime Areas: Personal, social & emotional development (PSED), communication and language (CL) and physical development (PD)
  • Specific Areas: Literacy (L), Maths (M), Understanding the world (UW) and Expressive Arts (EAD)

In Reception, we aim to promote ‘The Characteristics of Effective Learning’ through skills that develop;

  • Engagement
  • Motivation
  • Thinking
  • Independence

to create enthusiastic, resilient and life-long learners. The children will develop these skills through adult led sessions as well as in play and learn. Our curriculum is built around the children’s interests, so do let us know if there is anything in particular that your child enjoys!

Well done to this weeks star of the week James.
