Early Years Class

At Reed First School the Early Years covers the period of time the children spend in Nursery and Reception. The class teacher is Mrs Tansley, who is supported by Mrs Chisnall and Mrs Rozier.

We operate a flexible induction programme so that the needs of each individual child can be met.

In our Early Years unit we have created an environment which supports, encourages and stimulates the children to become independent learners.

Autumn Term 2020

The Early Years children have been very busy and have had a wonderful first half term. The children have all been amazing and settled so fantastically well. This half term the children have been learning and exploring  their classroom, the different toys and games inside and outside and the new routines, expectations and how to look after the classroom and each other.

The children really enjoyed showing their ‘all about me boxes’ and talking to their class about their special and important things.

They have also enjoyed sharing stories with an adult and with each other and have been learning to sing lots of new songs.

We have been using our name cards to practise writing our name with correct letter formation and pencil grip and some of us are writing our name independently.

The children have been busy with the sand tray, the painting easel, making pictures and cards, dinosaurs, Duplo….the list goes on and on.

Here are just a few of the activities that the children have been exploring and playing.

The children have been working and playing together during Child Initiated Times and Adult led tasks.
