Welcome to our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) page. We are a unit of Nursery (3 and 4 year olds) and Reception (4 and 5 year olds) children. Here you can find out all about our setting and the learning that takes place.

We are very lucky to have a large learning area for the children to use. The photos on the left are of our ‘big room’ and our two classrooms and the photos on the right are our outdoor area. All of these areas are where the children will choose their independent learning through play.
Every class has at least one school councillor to help share their classes’ views and make changes across the school.
Every class has at least 1 dojo master. The dojo masters help show visitors around school and explain what they are/have been doing in class.
Click on the tabs below to find out more information about each topic. Throughout the year we will also add pictures of memorable experiences and hooks!
In this topic the children will learn all about traditional tales and how stories are structured. We will read 2 stories using our Talk for Writing skills. The children will learn to orally retell the story, draw a story hill, innovate/change the story and then retell their own version of the story.
Also during this half term our topic work will include talking about feelings, changes in seasons and our families.
For this half term we will be focusing on characters and how to change them in the story.
Reception Talk for Writing story
Mr Ridgley, our site manager, found something strange on the cameras today. He gave us the footage and we were shocked to see what he had found. There was a bear in our big room!
Where had it come from? Why was it there? The children had great fun sharing their experiences and ideas to answer the questions.
We made porridge like mummy bear. We made sure that is was not too hot and it was just right. We even made it sweeter by adding our favourite fruit; strawberries, raspberries or banana.
Two of the children in our unit have an allotment with their Grandparents. Over the summer they had been growing lots of yummy vegetables. The boys brought them in for us to have and we decided to make a vegetable soup. The children helped to wash, peel and chop the vegetables before adding them to the slow cooker. We all then shared the soup for snack. It was delicious!
Please check Class Dojo for your child’s home learning. Also remember that reading with your child is part of their home learning. We would like you to read with your child at least three times a week.
Our PE sessions are every Tuesday. The children enjoy learning different skills through gymnastics, dance and games. PE is led by Miss Marley and Miss Gilder.
As part of the curriculum children need to develop their independence when changing. Therefore children are currently removing their jumpers, socks and shoes. This will continue to happen until October half term.
After October half term children will be changing into their PE kits. They will need a white t-shirt, black shorts/joggers or leggings and black pumps. All items will need to be labelled with your child’s name and placed into a PE bag also with their name on.
