Welcome to EYFS

10th Nov 2017

Welcome to the EYFS year group page.

We have had a very busy Autumn term so far...


  • We have have had lots of fun taking part in 'WriteDance' sessions which develop children's gross and fine motor skills.
  • We have been started learning all of our letters and the sounds they make and we have been practising writing these letters too using our beautiful cursive script. 
  • We are now starting to use these letters 'Fred talk', read and spell words. 


  • We have been busy learning to recognise our numerals and have been enjoying using the 'Tentown' characters to find out more about them.
  • We have been doing lots of counting and finding the correct number of objects.

We are excited about sharing our Maths learning with you on Friday 1st December 2017.



Our 'Once upon a time' topic has gone down really well with the children. They have enjoyed learning the stories and taking part in lots of different activities including:

  • Making and eating 'Gruffalo' crumble
  • Painting and collaging characters from the story 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear'
  • Making up our own stories based on the story 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear'
  • Going on an autumn walk and collecting materials for our Land Art 
  • Building houses for the 'Three Little Pigs' (we are wondering if the Big Bad Wolf might pay us a visit!)

We have also learned about and celebrated Bonfire night and Diwali. The children have been finding out why and how people celebrate these events.

We especially enjoyed:

  • Tasting Indian sweets
  • Making Diva lamps
  • Printing firework pictures

Have a look at our photos and see how much fun we have all had!
