Welcome to Spring Term 2 in EYFS



Traditional Tales

Our first topic this term will be based around the story ‘DON'T READ THIS BOOK!’ by Debbie Allwright. Through our 'Narrative Immersion’ approach to learning we will be learning about traditional tales including Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella, The Princess and the Pea and Little Red Riding Hood.

Our topic will begin when we open our story box to discover an empty book… where has the story gone? The children will step into Storyland to search for the story, instead they will meet story characters that have lost their stories and are not sure where they belong. The children need to assist by telling the characters their story and returning them back where they belong. Meanwhile the King bans books until his story is found! This means that all reading and writing must be done in secret.  

Shhh!!!! Please don’t read this story to your child. It’s a secret!




Early Years Foundation Stage

In Reception, we follow the new Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS) which is divided in to 7 areas of learning. All areas of learning are interconnected and implemented through carefully planned, purposeful play based around the children's interests.


Prime Areas

Personal, Social and Emotional development;

Communication and Language;

Physical development


Specific areas



Understanding the world

Expressive arts and design

In Reception we learn through a range of teacher directed and child-initiated activities which take place both inside and outside the classroom. We focus on building positive relationships with the children where the children feel supported and learn to be strong and independent learners.


Our Busy Week!



Every morning, the children will have a healthy snack. This is a lovely social opportunity for the children. Snack is £3.00 a week can be paid for either electronically on-line or by placing the money in an envelope which can be put in the yellow box in reception.  Your child will also be provided with a free afternoon snack.



We have one P.E session a week on a Friday afternoon. Your child will need their indoor PE kit including the school shorts and t-shirt and a pair of trainers; please could you put these in the yellow sports bag. Earrings will need to be removed before school and long hair should be tied back. All clothes need to be clearly named.



Swimming will begin in the summer term.


Reading Books

Your child will bring home a library book to share with you. Later in the term your child will also bring home an Oxford Reading Tree book to read with you. Your child will read twice a week at school and a note will be put into their reading diary to inform you of their reading days. We strongly recommend that you read with your child for ten minutes a day. Your child will also bring home a phonics book with sounds to practise.
