EYFS


 

Welcome to our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Page

A very warm welcome to our page. We have four classes including Nursery, Maple, Cherry and Fir. All four classes often work together as a unit, and have a shared outdoor play area.

In Nursery and Reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. We use "Tapestry", an online learning journal, to record the children's daily learning journey which is then shared regularly with parents and carers.

We do not set homework in EYFS, although we encourage our parents to read with their children on a daily basis for 10 minutes, practise their ‘Tricky Robots’ phonics, work towards being a ‘Handwriting Hero”, and to have fun learning on ‘Busy Things’ which is available in your child’s London Grid for Learning online account.

By working together, we aim to make this the best possible start to a love of life-long learning. It is a privilege to be sharing your child’s first stepping stone into education.

We hope you will find all the information you need about Nursery and Reception life here at Chase Bridge. However, if you do have any questions, please send an email to info@chasebridge.richmond.sch.uk. Each teacher also has a direct, class email address which is checked once a week for non-urgent messages. 

Our EYFS team leader is Mrs Edgoose who is also class teacher to Maple Class.

 

Nursery

Our Nursery Team consists of Mrs West, Miss Rush, Mrs Raheel, Ms Mustafa and is led by Mrs Patten and Mrs O'Hara - caring, enthusiastic early years practitioners who have the knowledge and expertise for working with children under five.

What will the children be learning this half-term?

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! This unit has an emphasis initially on understanding the world, with a focus on learning about the seasonal changes as we begin to see signs of autumn followed by winter.

The school site provides a rich and varied space to explore these changes using our senses to engage children’s learning and develop their knowledge of the world around them, with the aim to enhance learning and develop their scientific knowledge.

Reception

Our Reception Teachers are Mrs Edgoose (Maple Class), Miss Scholes (Cherry Class), Ms Mustafa and Mrs Taylor (Fir Class). They are ably assisted by our teaching assistants: Mrs Astbury, Mrs Meta, Miss Rush, Mrs Apcar and Mrs Newson.

What will the children be learning this half-term?

SpaceExploring the solar system and comparing life in space with life here on Earth.  We aim to spark pupils’ curiosity about the world around them and ask questions to further their understanding about the world beyond their familiar environment.  We will begin by discussing the tradition of ‘Fireworks Night’ and children will be invited to contribute their own experiences of seeing fireworks. We will make up our own fireworks dances and artwork and have a go at writing words for the sounds of fireworks, such as ‘pop’and ‘whizz’. We will then move on to learning about other things we can see in the night sky, such as the stars and the moon, and then to the planets of the solar system.
