In Reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which sets out the standards that all Early Years settings must provide.

This is split into 3 prime areas: 

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Communication and Language 

Physical Development 

and 4 specific areas: 



Understanding of the World

Expressive Arts and Design 

We have included a really useful parents' guide to the Early Years below along with tips for helping your children at home. 


We also teach daily phonics sessions by following the Letters and Sounds guidelines. Take a look at our phonics page for more information. 


Please remember to bring your book bag into school every day!!!

Books will be changed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday

Every Wednesday afternoon the children will be going into our lovely woodland area. Please remember to bring a spare change of clothes, a coat and a pair of wellies.


Every Friday morning Acorns & Saplings will be having their P.E session. Please practise getting dressed and undressed at home.
