Welcome to The EYFS
Miss Kilduff (Nursery) & Miss Caygill (Reception)
The children start school at 8.40, coming in to Good Morning Maths, activities and name writing for Reception in their morning books. Miss Caygill and Miss Kilduff are available to answer any questions and deal with any concerns as well as hear your exciting news! We get the children ready to leave for 3.05pm to allow parents with older children to have time to collect them from the other doors after collecting Nursery or Reception children.
For children staying for dinners in Nursery and children on school dinners in Reception, the menu is in the Reception entrance to help your child to choose what they would like. We also try to send home menus regularly and they are on the school dinners website.
Our Family Learning classes are great fun. We have had one really successful term with Mrs Hood, and will keep you posted on when the next term is available.
We also love singing every Friday. We have singing for Nursery in the mornings, before home time, and singing at 2.40 for the afternoon Nursery and Reception together. The more the merrier! We welcome families to join in the fun, and find that it is well loved by brothers, sisters, cousins and friends who haven’t started at Nursery yet!
Reception children have their books changed three times a week, more if possible. Nursery children have a home-school library system. Reception also have homework weekly, with practical activities to do together to keep everyone involved in what is happening at school and at home.
We always try to use the children’s interests, so although we have our plan ready for the term, it can change dramatically as the children develop, which is why currently we have several topics in the unit – animals, pirates and dinosaurs! But all of the topics are planned through the careful progression of the EYFS.
For any other information on our practice and policies, just ask or arrange a time to come and see us. We welcome your involvement, and appreciate any support with reading, craft, cooking and baking, walks, visitors – anything!
Thank you, Miss Caygill and Miss Kilduff
