The Early Learning Goals

At the end of Reception Year, children's progress is measured against the Early Learning Goals, as an expected level of development for a typical 5 year old child - children will be either emerging towards, at the expected or exceeding the expected level. 

These pages are taken from the " What to expect, when" document, written especially for parents as a guide to the ages and stages of children's development throughout the Early Years.

The full document can be found here. Remember, all children make different rates of progress and this is just a guide to what a typical child should achieve.

💛 Children in Need 2019 💛

💌 Poppy Postcards 💌

November 2019

 

'Postcards of Kindness' encourages people to send postcards to residential homes in the UK to help combat loneliness. As one of our Upperby values is 'Caring for others' we aim to spread kindness and promote caring for others. 

The children have had a lovely morning making their own Remembrance Day themed postcards and finding out more about why we wear poppies on Remembrance Day.

🎃 Munchkin Pumpkins 🎃 

October 2018

 

This week our curiosity cube contained three munchkin pumpkins and a copy of 'Winnie's Amazing Pumpkin' by Valerie Thomas and Korky Paul.

As you can see from our October display the children came up with some excellent ways to explore and investigate the munchkin pumpkins! 

If you have not seen our curiosity cube yet, why not take a look the next time you are in.

The cube is there to develop the children's knowledge and understanding by encouraging them to ask questions about the objects inside and to develop their language skills by talking about what they can see with their friends.

🎃 Welcome back! 🎃

With the excitement of Halloween building the children have enjoyed talking about their favourite costumes to dress up in. 

The children loved today's story so much they decided to draw their own Miss Moon's Moonlight school pictures - check out our super writing as well!

🔢 Super Simple Cup Games 🔢

We have had so much fun playing these easy to make cup games. Why don't you have a go at home! 

We started by writing numbers on sticky labels and putting the cups in order. Then we hid Numberblock 1 under a cup, we had to follow the cup as one of the children moved them around and then guess which cup it was under!

We were so good at finding the Numberblocks we made a game of finding pairs. We put new number labels on the bottoms of the cups and turned them upside down. Then we hid objects under each cup and had to try and find a matching pair.
