EYFS 2021 - 2022

Mrs Buckley

Miss Healey


Welcome to Summer Term 1 in EYFS

Our Classes:

Class 10 Miss Healey/TA - Mrs Greening

Class 11 Mrs Pepper/Mrs Harper TA - Mrs Noden



                                          Jack and the Beanstalk


Our topic this half term is based around the traditional tale of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’.

A huge beanstalk grows in Jack's garden, but what will he find at the top?

As part of this topic we will be exploring the themes of change, emotions and wealth through imaginative activities as the children meet Jack, Jack’s mum and the Giant as part of our story box sessions at the beginning of each week.

We will also be learning all about growth as part of Understanding the World and we will be finding out lots about Castles.


Early Years Foundation Stage

In Reception, we follow the  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!



We are pleased to let you know that every morning, the children will now be offered the choice of a healthy snack which is the same as the other year groups. Similar to the lunch options, you will be able to see the selections they have made by logging into your child on your Arbor App. Please note that all snack items are charged at the point of order.

Alternatively, you can send your child into school with their own healthy snack.

Your child will be provided with a free fruit/vegetable afternoon snack.



We have one P.E session a week on a Monday afternoon. This PE lesson will be taken by Mrs Wilson and Mr Read.

With the guidance in place advising against changing clothes in school, children will be required to come to school wearing their full PE Kit. As they will have to wear their PE kit throughout the whole school day, the children will need to be suitably dressed and prepared for indoors, outdoors and all weather conditions.

We are suggesting that the Elworth PE t-shirt and shorts/skort be worn underneath the Elworth jogging bottoms and zip up top. (This to allow layers to be taken off if children get too warm when inside, whilst providing layers for warmth when outside). A waterproof jacket is a necessity, in case of poor weather. Children will also need to come in wearing a sensible pair of sports trainers.



Unfortunately swimming will not be taking place this half term.



Each week your child will bring home a practical maths activity which can be completed at home. This will come home on a Wednesday and needs to be completed by the following Wednesday. Please take a photograph of your child completing the challenge and add it to the at home section of his/ her learning journey on Tapestry.


Reading Books

Your child will bring home a library book they have chosen to share with you. They will also bring home a Read Write Inc reading or blending book to read with you. Please practise segmenting and blending with them to support their early reading skills.  We strongly recommend that you read with your child for ten minutes a day. Also, your child will bring home a phonics sheet with sounds to practise and write.
