Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage!

Reception and Stay and Play

Meet the EYFS team...

At the beginning of the Reception Year children are assessed using the Early Development Matters and using information provided by parents and previous Early Years settings that children have attended. This will help the EYFS team to plan exciting learning opportunities that meet the needs of your child and provide them with the appropriate level of challenge.  Our planning is based around our topic and also from the interests and curiosities of the children.  Our topic web demonstrates the areas of learning and how the current topic is woven into these.  Literacy and Maths sessions are delivered daily and link into our topic and themes that have arisen.  Children are then encouraged to extend their own learning by utilising our resources to continue what we have taught into their play. Play based learning is an important aspect of the Early Years Foundation Stage. As well as the Areas of Learning, children are also assessed against the Characteristics of Effective Learning; Engagement, Motivation, Creativity and Critical Thinking.


In Reception we are...




Our topic this term is...

Lights on Cotton Rock: (Illustrated Edition)




PE is taught every Tuesday afternoon . Please ensure your child has their full PE kit with trainers. During the colder months we need our winter PE kit of warm joggers, jumper and outdoor trainers. Please can kits stay in school throughout the week just in case they are needed on another day.  Thank You.

Is your child starting school in September 2021?
