8.35 Key Skills time

This is an important part of the school day and enables children to settle quickly into the routine of the day. Activities are set out with a different focus each day and also encourage the children to work together, share and take-turns. These activities provide an opportunity for children to practise and consolidate skills and are a valuable part of learning time. 

Monday

Tuesday

Wednesday

Thursday

Friday

Key skills: lotto games (visual memory)

Key skills: fine motor activities (physical development/writing)

Key skills: jigsaw puzzles (problem- solving)

Key skills: share books (reading for pleasure)

Key skills: change for PE (self-help)

Snack Time

We provide the children with a snack twice a day. They have a choice of milk or water and most days a selection of fruits to try. We are still learning at this time. We learn about:

  • The importance of washing our hands
  • Being independent – getting our cup, finding a seat, pouring our own drink and helping ourselves to snack from the fruit bowl.
  • Healthy eating and trying different fruits
  • Getting to know each other, finding out names and more and building friendship
  • Tidying up – we help wipe tables, dry up and load and unload the dishwasher

PE

PE is Monday afternoon and Friday morning.  Please make sure your child has a PE kit and all items are named (white t-shirt, blue shorts and plimsolls).  EYFS children do not require outdoor PE kits. If your child is nursery-aged and attends either of these sessions they will need a PE kit.

All children will be encouraged to dress and undress as independently as possible, so practise at home will be greatly appreciated and help with this important life skill.

PE: Planning for PE includes coverage of the 'Moving and Handling' and ‘Health & Self-care’ which are aspects of EYFS area of learning: Physical Development.
