Hello and welcome to the EYFS webpage. This page will be updated every Friday during term-time. Please check this weekly for information about what we have been doing during the week and recommended activities that you can do at home which will support your child's learning. Thank you to all of the parents/children that did the recommended activity last week. We are pleased to say that we are getting record numbers of recommended activities being completed so far this year, which really does make such a difference to your children's learning. Please note that you may choose to record your child's recommended homework in the home/school books or on Tapestry.

How you can help your child over the Spring break and Easter bank holidays
Pick from the below activities:
Hard boil eggs or cut out paper eggs and ask your child to draw a pattern on them. Ask your child to talk about the pattern.
Draw an Easter picture and write a caption to go with the picture, such as, 'The rabbit hopped to get the carrot', 'The egg is yummy' etc.
Make or go on an Easter egg hunt. Model using positional language and encourage your child to use positional language to describe where the eggs were hidden. Ask your child to estimate and then count how many Easter eggs he/she has collected. Ask how many there would be if there was one more or one less egg.
Make your own Easter cakes. You could support your child to research a recipe online and then talk about health/safety issues associated with cooking. When making the cakes talk about the weight/amount of each ingredient and support your child to follow the instructions.
We really encourage you to do our recommended activities; your support at home has such a positive impact on your child's learning. If you do a recommended activity please note this in your child's orange home/school message book or on Tapestry. On Mondays we celebrate the homework completed and all children who have done this receive a house point and a sticker.
We hope that you find all of our staff helpful and approachable. Please don't hesitate to speak to any member of the team if you have any queries or concerns, however big or small.
