EYFS

Our early years children are thoroughly enjoying playing outside in our new canopy area. As a result of our extension, the children are now experimenting more in the water tray, painting pictures on the easel and enjoying having the space to explore new movements. Our role-play area inside is a ‘den’ area and we now have a reading and relaxing house. The children are enjoying dressing up, creating narratives with the small world toys, digging in the cornflakes and playing pirates. We are very proud of all the children and are delighted with the outstanding progress they have made this year! To see these fantastic achievements you can look at your child's profile; these are available at all times for parents to view in the EYFS classroom.
