Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) home page!
Since September 2015, there have been some very exciting changes to EYFS. We now have a wonderful new extension to our building for our 2 year old pupils and have 8 children on a morning and 12 on an afternoon session. As well as this, our EYFS garden has been hugely extended and is now more than double its original size! In it, we have a fantastic reading area, complete with storyteller’s chair and toadstools, themed writing sheds (one for Superheroes only!) and even a newly planted forest. We love our new den and climbing frame!
Our EYFS Learning information can be found in the Teaching, Learning and the Curriculum section of our website.
Visit the “Little Rainbows” section of our website to learning more about our 2 year old provision.
Have a look at the photos below to see how much fun we have in EYFS as we are busy learning and working together…
Within EYFS, the learning is child led. The children decide on the topics they would like to learn about. This term they have become very interested in dinosaurs and have found some bones in the garden. Through discussion, the children discussed they were fossils. The police have asked us to investigate to find out what the bones belong to. The children will be identifying the dinosaur by looking at pictures and x-rays of dinosaur bones. They will be recording their knowledge of dinosaurs and what they want to find out. The children are working together to develop a paleontologist area with an excavation pit so they can study the bones and look closely at them – drawing sketches, measuring, identifying different bones from different parts of body. Finally we will be going to be writing a reply to the police, explaining our findings so far and informing them of our next steps. The children will also be making dinosaur models from different materials e.g. clay/salt dough etc.
In EYFS, the children are settling into their new environment and building relationships with staff/other children. They are also learning how to brush their teeth this half term.
