Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Autumn Two

During Autumn two the children are going to be exploring the exciting changes that happen to the world around us during the season of Autumn. This is going to help us with our topic of 'Colour my World'. We are going to experiment with different colours, learning about primary colours and what happens when mix them. Elmer the patchwork elephant is also going to help us learn about colour through the exciting adventures he has in his books. 


We have begun exploring Tentown to help us with our mathematics in Nursery. King One, along with his helpful friends have told us stories and sung songs to help with our number recognition, number writing and counting skills. 



We will be revisiting Phase One of letters and sounds and ensuring the children have a rich understanding of rhyme and alliteration as well as being confident in oral segmenting and blending.



Making marks is a key skill in Early Years and the children love making marks inside on paper and with paint as well as outside using chalk and water. 

We encourage the children to distinguish between the marks they make and talk about the beautiful pictures they draw.
