Our Learning


In FS1 we learn through play and love to explore our learning environment both inside and outside. We are creative and learn together with our friends in imaginative ways.


Here are some of the things we have been doing:


Our big question...

Up or down?

We will be exploring things that go up and down! We will read stories about things that go up and down, focusing on animals. We will explore animal's habitats and how they move. 


The children will be exploring this big question through all areas of our curriculum. Here are some of our exciting activities:


Reading stories about things that go up and down- Which story is your favourite? 







We will be exploring animals and their habitats- what animals would you find in the Antarctic?





We will be exploring zoos and farms too- what animals would you find on a farm?








The Way The Truth and The Life


In RE we will be talking about Easter and the celebration of Jesus always being with us. We will be exploring the gifts of joy and peace that Jesus has given us and finding ways to share these gifts with others. We will also be celebrating Mary and exploring her love for us. 







Jesus Appears To His Disciples


We love to share stories in FS1 and the children enjoy choosing their own books and spending time in our reading den. We read stories together every day as a class and the children also take home a book to share with their families. This half term our story time books will include: 









Nursery Rhymes


We sing nursery rhymes and songs every day in FS1 and the children all have their favourite rhyme! We always join in with different actions and sometimes even add in our own verses. Here are some of the rhymes and songs we will be learning this half term:



Five Little Speckled Frogs

Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed


We will be singing lots of number songs and learning to count past 10. We will also be recognising the numbers to 10 and counting objects to match the numbers that we can read- we will be practising writing some of them too. 


Have a go at some of these mathematics games:
