During this period of home learning there are lots of external resources online to help you out! Have a look at some that I have found!

Summer Term 2020


Wow what a different start to the Summer term. Have a look at the summer planning to see the different activities you could try at home.


If you are stuck do not panic - I would keep going over numbers to 20 , what is more and less. Phonic sounds are also important!


Get your child to 'Fred Talk' words like c-a-t, m-a-t

Maths is all around us! In the EYFS we use White Rose Maths and adapt it for the needs of the children. We aim to develop confidence and competence in maths - regardless of their age. This style produces strong and secure learning with real meaning. We try, where possible, to make links with what we are learning and the real world. 


This term we are covering numbers to 10 (and beyond) We have been comparing and measuring using non-standard and standard units. We will also be looking at money and time!


We still sing lots of songs such as '10 green apples' '5 speckled frogs' and '10 fat sausages' to develop our number skills and mathematical vocabulary. 





This year Albury has introduced a new phonics scheme called Read Write Inc. RWI phonics teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. They learn to form each letter, spell correctly and compose their ideas step-by-step.


The children have adapted to the new scheme really well and are enjoying the sessions. You will probable hear lots pf new phrases like, 'Fred Talk', 'special friends' and 'you can't Fred a red!' The children are so versed in these phrases they will be able to explain them to you!


Nursery children have started on the Nursery RWI scheme which focuses on shared stories. Each day the children have a different story that they get to be fully immersed in. We are building the foundations for the next stage which they will begin in the summer term.


Our pre school children have their daily circle sessions where they get to share stories, puppets, songs, musical instruments and a whole host of sensory play items. These sessions are really good for developing their social, personal and listening skills.
