Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Welcome to Early Years!


Our Little Conkers Pre-School children and Reception children have lots of wonderful spaces to explore and learn in. In addition to our three indoor classrooms we have a large dedicated outdoor area, sensory room and a brand new woodland play space! We also make full use of the learning spaces available to the whole school including the school hall and field for our PE sessions and the Green Room for other exciting activities and reflection time.



Our themes and topics are decided alongside the children and their interests and other exciting, seasonal events. This helps to inspire and develop enthusiasm for learning. We aim to create a caring and supportive environment where our children can learn through hands on activities and experiences. Our EYFS team play along side the children to extend their learning opportunities and vocabulary and really get to know and understand each individual child in our class.


We love sharing this with you via our learning platform Tapestry. For more information on how we use Tapestry and keep in contact with families follow this link Home school communication
