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!
Have a look at the photos below to see what learning took place in Autumn term:
In early years, we will begin the half term exploring winter through activities such as winter walks, creating winter pictures using a wide range of media, winter themed small world, role play games and taking an in-depth look into winter animals, exploring what they eat, where they live, what they look like etc. We will then move onto senses, throughout this topic we will explore all of our five senses in a wide range of different ways. We will finish the term with activities focusing on our favourite stories and valentines. Alongside topic work, Nursery children will take part in Maths activities focusing on count out objects and number formation, whilst reception children will continue to work on simple number problems, number formation, shape and time. Nursery children will engage in a range of early phonics activities focusing on refining listening skills whilst reception will continue to focus on introducing new sounds, blending, segmenting and reading. Little Rainbows will continue to follow planning in the moment with communication and language activities and physical activities daily.
