Learning outcomes for EYFS

In Early Years foundation stage we love to learn through play indoors and outdoors.

We have a fantastic learning environment including the classrooms, the forest area and other outdoor areas.

Our children enjoy learning how to make friends and develop their confidence.

We have lots of opportunities to learn through active play, investigation, stories and visits.

We strive to ignite children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.

As a team with our parents, families and children, we endeavor to fulfill the principles of the Early Years of Unique child, Positive relationships, Enabling environments and high quality Learning and development.

We focus on developing the Characteristics of Effective Learning in EYFS (see booklet in downloads section).


PE will be on Fridays this year. Please ensure that your child has their full PE kit in school.

Reading books

The children receive new reading books each week. Please ensure that your child has their learning wallet in school each day.


Your child will have a home learning book. Books are collected every two weeks. Please ensure that your child’s book is returned to school on the date stated in their book.
