Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

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.


We have lots of wonderful spaces for the children 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.


The Reception Year is an exciting but busy year! We encourage the children to develop independence during their time with us. We place a great deal of emphasis on developing early writing, reading and number skills. We value the support from our parents in supporting their children with these key life skills.


Parents are kept up-to-date with their child's progress through our online

learning journey 'Tapestry'. We regularly post observations, photographs and videos of your child in this safe, online forum so that you can enjoy your child's learning journey with them.
