Foundation Stage Preparation & Transition

 

What are the expectations of EYFS?

We expect Foundation Stage to have lots of fun!

We expect Foundation Stage to have a positive attitude to their learning and support those around them.

Useful Information

 

What does my child need to bring to school each day?

  • Book bag (containing a reading book, reading record and a spare change of clothes if needed)
  • Water bottle (water only!)
  • Coat
  • Weather dependent – hat, scarf, sun cream etc.
  • Lunch box if necessary (remember no NUTS in any form – including Nutella or nut spreads)

 

Which days will you have PD in EYFS?

We will have PD sessions on Thursday. We will also have outdoor PD sessions as well as free flow in to our EYFS outdoor areas.

 

How can I be part of my child’s learning journey?

We will keep you up to date and invite you to contribute to your child’s Online Learning Journal using Tapestry. We encourage you to contribute as often as possible as this will give us a broader view of your child and their interests.

There will be opportunities for you to come in to ‘stay and play’ throughout the year. These sessions will allow you to learn and play alongside your child.

Please also follow us on Twitter and check out our school website for regular updates.

 

Foundation Stage Trips

 

Will my child be going on any trips this year?

EYFS will be going on lots of fun trips this year, including Waitrose, the pantomime, Boston Tea Party, Pizza Express, Birdland and Jurassic Journey and Multi-Skills. We will also be bringing learning to life by inviting visitors in to school too!
