28th May 2021 - So lovely to see all our foundation children engaging in role play. As Maria Montessori said, “Play is the work of children”. Stand back and observe all areas of the curriculum in action!

14th May 2021 - When I grow up.... This week EYFS have been thinking about the lives of the people around us and their roles in society. We’ve enjoyed lots of role play and dressing up. We talked about the jobs in the stories we listened to, and then discussed what we would like to be when we grow up.

April 19th 2021 - EYFS have been looking at spring flowers. We made observational drawings with oil pastels, pencils and watercolours. We started mixing primary colours to match some of our flower colours. We will explore this more next week. Our words of the week were "observe" and “bouquet" 💐
26th March 2021 - EYFs enjoyed a special unicorn day. We aimed to inspire as much independent writing as possible. We told unicorn stories and adapted songs. Our unicorns helped us with subtraction. We made unicorn tails and horns. Even our playground turned into a magical unicorn land! 🦄 🌈

15th January 2021 - Supporting remote learning. Weekly Overview (Julia Donaldson & On the Farm)
We are supporting remote learning for EYFS children through our online learning app, Tapestry. If you have any problems accessing our lessons, please email or phone our admin team.Thank you for all your support and the amazing work the children are doing so far. We are so proud of everyone!
We have tweaked out provision a bit for next week, hoping to make things more accessible for you, and in response to our survey results. Here is a suggested timetable for you to follow at home, though please adapt this to fit your own circumstances. Each lesson will have either a yellow or white front cover. The yellow lessons are ones to prioritise, and the white ones are optional extras. Please remember that when we are teaching EYFS in school, a lot of the day follows a play based approach, both inside and outside. The children learn so much through free play, putting all the things they have been taught into practice and helping to cement these ideas.
We really do appreciate that so many of you are juggling jobs, children, shared laptops, etc. Please keep messaging us in whichever format is easiest for you and let us know if we need to tweak our provision for your family. We will do what we can.
5th January 2021 - We have prepared a short video for each class to let our children know how important they are to us and that we are thinking of them in these unusual times. We are working hard to get all our exciting home learning ready and will be sharing this with families via Tapestry, our on line learning journal.
11th December 2020 - It's all about the nativity! We hope you enjoy our class nativity plays as much as we enjoyed making them. Sing along if you know the words! :)
Merry Christmas to all our families and friends!
