March 2021 

Welcome back to Foundation Stage. We are so pleased to have you all back in school! 


We have lots of fun each day as we learn new things, make friends and explore the world around us. 

We have lots of exciting things planned!

Have a look at our classrooms:

 Our Curriculum

In Reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). 

We teach across 7 areas of learning, as defined in the EYFS framework.

 We use ongoing observation and assessment in the three prime areas and four specific areas of learning to move the children’s learning forwards.


 Prime areas of learning:

• Communication and Language
• Physical Development
• Personal, Social and Emotional Development


 Specific areas of learning:

• Literacy
• Mathematics
• Understanding the World
• Expressive Arts and Design

What to Expect When is a Parent’s Guide to a child’s learning and development in the EYFS.

TopMarks is a great site to use for interactive activities for Early Years, supporting English, Maths and other areas of learning.
