Welcome to our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Page

A very warm welcome to our page. We have five classes including Nursery AM, Nursery PM, Maple, Cherry and Fir. All five classes often work together as a unit, and our reception classes have doors open between classes as well as 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 speak to the class teachers at drop off or home time, or send us an email at

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



Our Nursery Team consists of Mrs West, Mrs Meta, Mrs Newson and Miss Rush and is led by Mrs Patten - 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?

We are incredibly proud of our nursery children who have spent the autumn term settling into school routine, exploring the school grounds, getting to know their teachers and making new friends.

As we move into the spring 1 term, they will be looking at the different jobs people have and why these jobs are important - who helps us in our community?  Through fun role-play and discussion, the children will explore the people in their lives and the wider community.  We will also be looking forward to our trip to Little Street for more imaginative role-playing.

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

What will the children be learning this half-term?

The Reception Team couldn’t be more proud of our reception children. Like our nursery pupils, they have settled well into new school routines and are now enjoying a full day of play and learning at school!

This term’s theme is all about traditional storytelling which will be used to help develop the children's speaking and listening skills. Goldilocks, Little Red Riding Hood and the Three Bill Goats Gruff will take the children on a learning journey which will include making their own delicious porridge.  Do ask your reception children which traditional tale they liked the best and why.
