End of home learning update



Welcome to our new reception children!! We are looking forward to lots of exciting learning and adventures together!!

The Early Years Foundation Stage is made up of seven areas of learning. These areas are divided into the Prime Areas and the Specific Areas. The Prime Areas are fundamental to your child’s development, and progress in these Prime Areas will help your child be successful in the Specific areas of learning.
The Prime Areas include; Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal Social and Emotional Development. The Specific Areas are: Maths, Literacy, Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding The World.

The adults we work with observe how we are learning. This is known as the Characteristics of Effective Learning and includes:

  • learning through playing and exploring
  • active learning through motivation
  • creating and thinking critically.

Our teachers support us so that we continue to be effective and motivated learners.
If you would like to find out more about the EYFS and the Characteristics of Effective Learning follow the link below.

Our learning is centred around the things we are interested in as this is when we learn best. Each day we have 90 minutes of interrupted child initiated play. This is when we play with what we know, we feel happiest to explore, practise new skills, make links in our learning, and try new things

Forest School

Every week the children take part in Forest School. Forest School gives children the opportunity to achieve, learn, develop confidence and self esteem through hands on learning experiences in our fantastic school grounds.

Forest School is a learner centred programme that fosters resilience and problem solving skills, as well as helping children to work co-operatively together while having lots of fun!! Learners have the opportunity to take risks appropriate to their environment and themselves.

They learn about the plants and animals that live in our school grounds and are taught how to use tools and equipment that help foster the development of their gross and fine motor skills.

Children are encouraged to come appropriately dressed for Forest School as we go out in all weathers!! Children can wear old joggers, jeans, or leggings with their school t-shirt and jumper. They need waterproof trousers, a warm coat, and wellington boots. In cold weather they also need thick socks, hat, scarf and gloves; sun hat and sun cream in the summer month

Parents and Friends……

Each week you are invited to come and stay and play with your child. This is a great opportunity for you to come and see what your child has been learning about and a chance for them to share their learning with you. These sessions are very relaxed and are open to grandparents, aunties, uncles, child-minders, and so on. We look forward to seeing you then !

To find out more about what we are learning about see the  EYFS long term plan document below.

Reading and Phonics information session

On 18th November Early Years and Key Stage 1 hosted a reading and phonics information for parents. Please find below the presentation used for this session. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the presentation.
