A little look at some of the learning your children have engaged in in their first few months in Reception

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

five, must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe.  It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children's school 'readiness' and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

(EYFS Statutory Framework (2018)

 

There are seven areas of learning and development that shape educational programmes in the early years.  All areas are important and cross over.  The first three areas engage children's curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, they help children to make healthy relationships, build an ability to learn and achieve.   These three areas are called the Prime Areas and are:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development 

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

  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • understanding the world
  • expressive arts and design

 

More information on the EYFS curriculum can be found in our Reception booklet.

Handy Information

 

TUCK 

Tuck is payable every Monday to Mrs Halligan or Mrs Wood.  Your £1 pays for toast everyday and for occasional extra bits and pieces which enhance children's learning, e.g. art and craft resources, baking ingredients, party food, role-play resources. If we do not receive enough contributions towards tuck, we may have to start providing it to only those who do pay.    

 

PE 

PE with Mr Stevenson will take place every Friday morning.  Please ensure your child has a PE Kit, black shorts, plain sky blue t-shirt, black pumps, trainers and jogging pants for outdoors and a pump bag.  This can be left on your child's peg for the half term.  Please write your child's name on each item of clothing.

 

Water Bottles 

Please provide a water bottle for your child and bring to school everyday.  We are a healthy school and only plain water is allowed, thank you.

 

Reading Books 

Reading books need to be in school everyday.  Please sign the Planner to indicate if you have read the book with your child at home.  Books will be changed weekly.

 

Sound Books

Sound books will be sent home every Friday.  Each week the new letter sounds the class learn during the week will be written in their book.  Please practise reading and writing these sounds at home and return the sound book to school on Mondays.

 

Library

Every Friday your child will be given the opportunity to choose a Library book.  This should be returned every week so that they can regularly change it.

 

Good News Bear

As a reward for lovely behavior, every child has the chance to take home our Good News Bear at some point over the year.  A book will also be sent in which you can help your child to draw and/or write or add photographs about their time with the bear.  The Bear will be sent home on Fridays. 

Plant and Play Afterschool Club

 

Our Early Years Plant and Play afterschool club will start in the Spring Term, details to follow.
