In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) we plan and assess with the Early Years Profile and the Characteristics of Effective Learning.  The Characteristics of Effective Learning are the developments of how your child learns:

Playing and Exploring - Engagement

Active Learning - Motivation

Creating and Thinking Critically - Thinking

Children will learn through self initiated activities and planned play activities. This will ensure the children have fun, learn basic skills, communicate with others and become independent.

The EYFS consists of 3 'Prime' areas of learning:

Personal, Social and Emotional development

Communication and Language development

Physical development

and 4 'Specific' areas of learning:



Understanding the World and RE

Expressive Arts and Design

The school has signed up to a new reading website. 

This website will help you access free age-related reading books each week to read at home.

How to log on:

Click on the link 

Enter the class code (I will send a text with the code).

Select your initials.

Your books will be assigned to you to read.

If you have read it get your parent to email me and I will assign you another book. Don't forget you can read it more than once. I can track online how often and how much you are reading. 

There are also lots of free books for you to select and read as well as your assigned book.

World Nursery Rhyme Week - The Wheels on the Bus

Reception have been sent home with a School Book Bag, Reading Diary and Reading book.

I would like book bags bringing into school everyday with reading diary and reading book. Please can parents jot down what reading has been done at home. Even if it’s looking at the pages and talking about the characters and settings. We encourage lots of talking and questioning about the books. They don’t have to read the full book in one night. You might want to just read 1 or 2 pages a night.

Happy reading smiley
