Reception (Early Years Foundation Stage)

The EYFS Staff

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) staff support the children as they embark on their learning journey through our school. Mrs Brogan (RJB) and Miss Evans (RAE) are the EYFS teachers. They are supported by Mrs Collinson, Mrs Richards and Mrs Sparey, the EYFS Teaching Assistants. Mrs Cripps and Mrs Mulla provide additional support in RAE. PPA cover is provided by Mrs Davis in RAE fortnightly and Mrs Fox in RJB each week.
 

Autumn Terms 2017 (September - December)

During the first half of the Autumn term the focus is on settling in, so activities will help the children to learn the routines and get to know their classmates. During the second half of the term the children will be inspired to learn through their own interests in order to develop perseverance, co-operation and problem solving.  
 

Supporting your child at home

In October, once all the children have started school, the children will be introduced to a new letter sound in school Monday to Thursday. It is important that they also practise their sounds at home, at least five times a week, so that they learn all the sounds with quick recall. When they can do this they will be able to start putting sounds together to read (blending for reading). 
 
Young children also need as many daily stories as an adult is able to read from a book, recall from their own childhood or even make up! This helps children to develop their listening skills and build an understanding of story structure. In addition, it fosters their imagination, as well as being an enjoyable experience!
 
Once the children have settled in, home learning books will be sent home every Friday and will be due back the following Tuesday.
