Welcome to EYFS

EYFS guidance for phonics January 2017

Kitchen Disco: Book Trust Workshop for Parents:

EYFS had a brilliant afternoon working with mums, dads and grandmas to read ‘Kitchen Disco’ our Book Trust book. It was a fantastic afternoon of fruit kebab making, maraca shaking and fruity fun! Thank you to all the parents and grandparents that came along to work with their children, we had a great time!

When I Grow Up Themed Week – November 2016

Visitors from a range of professions came to talk to EYFS about what they could be when they grew up. We had Lilly’s dad, a police officer, Noah’s dad, a fireman, Avarin’s dad, an author and illustrator and many more! We learnt lots about what we could grow up to be!

EYFS Trip to Page Park

10th May – school trip part 1. Whilst we didn’t get to Slimbridge today we still had a fantastic morning at Page Park. Thank you to all of the mums, dads and carers who volunteered their time to walk up with us. We had great fun in the rain at the play park, splashing in puddles and exploring the sensory garden. We had a picnic lunch in the classrooms back at school and a Forest Schools afternoon – not bad for an impromptu day!


Springtime in EYFS

EYFS Booktime afternoon

Fifteen EYFS parents and their children experienced a lovely afternoon of activities with Booktime, a national bookgifting programme run by an independent charity Book Trust. The amusing tale called “Open very carefully” was about a naughty crocodile.

In both classes we made four enornmous crocodiles and Mrs Poole and Mrs Savage made bookmarks too! We also designed a book cover for our favourite book character!

EYFS Christmas Party

We had great fun at our Christmas party. We played musical statues, musical bumps, ate party food and had a special visit from Father Christmas!

“Follow The Light.”

Here are some photos from our Christmas play called “Follow The Light.” Our EYFS classes were absolute stars!
