Welcome to the Super Squirrels!!!!

Hi there, we are the Super Squirrels!
We love to come to school to be with our friends and learn through play and exploration. There are 15 super children in Squirrel class and we are supported by Mrs Jones, Mrs Fillingham, Miss Woodhead and Mrs Beat.
We love to explore in our outdoor area….in the mud kitchen, the garden, building dens and riding bikes. We love to use the water pump, use real equipment and be silly with our friends!! We love to role play and pretend, make music, write and draw, play games together and create amazing buildings!
Look at all the fun Squirrel Class have been up to so far this year. Photos to follow soon…!!
We use Read, Write, Inc and Letters and Sounds at school to help us with reading, writing and spelling.
We love to explore Maths through real life opportunities and activities with the adults.
Take a look at our curriculum topic overview and newsletter here:

In Squirrel class, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum using ‘Development Matters in The Early Years Foundation Stage’. Development Matters
As per government guidelines, a lot of our learning will take place outside (unless it is absolutely pouring with rain) and with this in mind, your child will need a change of footwear (wellies) and a warm coat in school at all times. A hat and gloves will be required as the weather gets colder.
As there is a chance that your child may have to self-isolate at some point with your family I have added links to The Oak National Academy. These lessons are teacher led and will enable you to continue learning until you are able to return to school. The sessions are fairly short and it instructs you on what to do and when, it will even tell you when to pause the video to get your resources ready!! Some activities require a worksheet to be printed, please let school if you need support with this.
The Three Little Pigs – Complete the lessons in sequence, 1 per day.
The link below will take you to a sequence of lessons based on The Three Little Pigs. Each lesson has a teacher led video of approximately 10 mins. Some lessons require resources and for the child to have a go independently – please support your child as much as you can. This way the lesson will be more effective.
Early Maths experiences – complete 1 lesson per day.
The link below will take you to a sequence of lessons based early mathematical experiences. Although these activities may seem simple, they help consolidate ideas and concepts essential to building a firm foundation in Early Years maths. Each lesson has a teacher led video of approximately 10 mins. Some lessons require resources and for the child to have a go independently – please support your child as much as you can. This way the lesson will be more effective.
