Early Years Foundation Stage

Welcome to the EYFS


Our EYFS classes are:

Paddington Class with Mrs Parker, Mrs Hunt, Mrs Kavanagh and Mr Rainford.

Dahl Class with Mrs Dimes, Miss Reed and Mrs Godleman

 

Thank you to all of the families that attended the Maths themed stay and play. It was lovely to see so many parents and grandparents.

Diary Dates:

Tuesday 5th February – Parents invited to stay and play 8.50-10.30 for Maths themed fun

The day will begin with a maths lesson and then activities that you can do with your child(ren). Unfortunately the maths lesson may be unsuitable for younger siblings, however they are welcome to visit from 9.30 to join in some activities, providing they are supervised for their own safety. Grandparents are also very welcome if parents are unable to attend.
Friday 15th February- Dress up as what you would like to be when you grow up

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

 

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and school reception classes.
