EYFS 2018 - 2019

Mrs Buckley


Welcome to Summer Term in EYFS



Jack and the Flum Flum Tree

Our new topic this term is based around the story 'Jack and the Flum Flum Tree' by Julia Donaldson. The children will meet Jack's Granny who is sick with a bad case of the moozles. To cure Granny the children will set sail on an adventure with Jack to the faraway Isle of Blowyernose in the quest for the flum flum fruit. They will enjoy activities based around the themes of doctors, pirates, under the sea and the jungle.  Will Jack succeed in finding the Flum Flum Fruit?

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; Class 10 on a Friday afternoon and Class 11 on Monday afternoon. Your child will need their outdoor PE kit and 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.



Class 10 will be swimming on Wednesday morning, 11.00am to 12.00am, and Class 11 will be swimming on a Wednesday afternoon, 1.00pm to 2.00pm. Your child will need a towel and a swimming costume; please could these be put in the blue swimming bag. Girls must wear swimming costumes (no bikinis) and boys must wear swimming trunks (no baggy shorts). Earrings and jewellery must be removed. Everything must be clearly named. In order for the swimming lessons to take place we will need helpers in the changing rooms and if possible a helper in the pool. If you are available to support us with swimming, please see you child's teacher.


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.
