Tuck money is payable every Monday. your £1 pays for your child to have snack and for any occassional extra bits that may be needed to enhance children's learning, e.g. arts and crafts resources, baking ingredients, party food, role play resources. Unfortunately if we do not receive enough contributions towards tuck, we may have to start providing it only to those who do pay.
Every Friday your child will receive a library book to take home and share with you. Please read this story with your child - sharing stories is important in developing your child's early reading skills. Your child needs to have their book bag in school. If they don't then unfortunately we are unable to provide your child with a book.
Each Friday, Benjamin Bear will be given to someone who has tried very hard with their learning during the week. There is a diary that will be sent home with Benjamin Bear for parents to record your adventures with him. Every child will have the opportunity to take Benjamin Bear home at some point during the year.
What is the Early Years Foundation Stage?
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards that all early years providers, catering for children from birth to

These three areas are called the Prime Areas and are:
The Prime Areas are strengthened and applied in the next four areas which are known as the Specific Areas:
