Welcome to EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage)

Where learning is fuelled by creativity

What to expect in EYFS

Early Years Foundation Stage (or EYFS) is where your child is welcomed into school and experiences the foundation of their learning journey within the community of TMS.

Our learning environment includes two adjoining classrooms and our own wonderful outdoor area where lots of exciting learning takes place. We also regularly use the school hall and fields.

We have daily phonics sessions with Little Wandle, as well as maths sessions and STAR learning (teacher led), and there is plenty of opportunity for the children to investigate their learning within STAR exploration (child led)!

Tapestry is a secure online Learning Journal where we post a blog each Friday with an update and photos of the learning that has taken place in EYFS during the week. The children will love talking to you about their photos and you will have the opportunity to talk to them about their learning! If you have any questions about Tapestry, or anything else regarding your child at school, please come and talk to us.

Support your child’s learning at home

Little Wandle phonics and early reading

Here is a link to the parents section of the Little Wandle website which gives information on how to support your child with their phonics learning, including videos of sounds taught, blending and tricky words. There is also information about the books your child brings home ~ a Little Wandle reading book for your child to read to you, and a sharing book for you to read to them!  https://www.littlewandlelettersandsounds.org.uk/resources/for-parents/

We send home a reading diary for you to record the books you and your child read, which includes information about Little Wandle phonics and letter formation, and a ‘sounds pouch’ to practice sounds and blending.

Please use Tapestry to send in photos for your child to share with their class ~ a great opportunity to develop communication and language skills as well as boosting confidence!
