Butterflies and Ladybirds

Welcome to Foundation

The intent in EYFS is to develop self-motivated, happy, engaged, enthusiastic, independent and curious learners who have positive relationships. We want our children to be confident, accepting and tolerant of others, resilient, caring and have self-belief. Through our various learning topics we promote positive well-being, encourage our children to make progress in their learning and in doing so, become knowledgeable about the world around them. 

In EYFS we implement the curriculum through child led topics and adult directed tasks to encourage all children to develop holistically. We do this

through lots of  ‘revise and revisit’ and talking about prior learning, as well as the children learning through play experiences. Our children are encouraged and supported to develop their social, emotional and communication skills. Positive relationships are fundamental to every aspect of our Early Years practice.

Understanding  The World

We really enjoyed investigating lots of different things in  our outdoor area and  in the classroom. The children independently explore the world around us by selecting their own resources and experimenting to discover what happens.   We have observed the changes over time with seeds and watched them grow into plants. We have also loved experimenting with materials and making predictions as a class to identify which objects dissolve and which don't.   

We are learning about the Ladybird we found.

I'm taking care of the flowers we are growing.

Here are the materials we experimented with to learn which dissolve and which don't. 

World Book Day

We celebrated our love of reading on World Book Day. We made our own bookmarks and shared our favourite books with our reading buddies and their teachers. We also had a teddy bears picnic to share our books with our classmates.
