Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Welcome to our Waterbeach School Early Years Foundation Stage Page

Exciting things the children will be learning in the Autumn Term

Our topic for this term is ‘Who am I?’. In this topic and as we settle into school, we will share information about ourselves with our teachers and new friends. Everyone is unique and everyone is special! We will find out about our families and homes and will think about the differences and the similarities between ourselves and others. We will talk about our interests, favourite stories and find out about our traditions and celebrations. We use the children’s ‘All About Me’ books to do this. The children are always very proud of their books and love sharing them with their new friends and teachers, so please ensure your child has one in school to share. We will spend lots of time getting to know the classroom environment, school expectations and our Golden Rules. We will explore the classroom and learn about all the things we can do in the different areas. We will also get to know the other areas of the school including the dinner hall, the gym, the forest, the orchard, and the playgrounds.

As part of this topic, we will also read some of our favourite Traditional Tales. We will be focusing in detail on the story of The Three Little Pigs. We will learn the story with actions to help us retell the tale, we will act out parts of the story and ‘hot seat’ to explore how characters may be feeling in different parts of the story. We will also read an alternative version of the story and come up with ideas of how to change or ‘innovate’ the story ourselves.
