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.

What will the children be learning this half term?

Chase Bridge Explorers This main intent of this unit is initially on ‘Understanding the World’, with a focus on finding out about dinosaurs and looking after living things on our planet to prevent extinction.

The use of non-fiction texts and technology will further support this, allowing the children to find out more information through videos, websites, dinosaur songs and games. By the end of this topic the children should be aware of the impact we have on living things and our environment as well as some additional knowledge of dinosaurs.

What will the children be learning this half term?

Ocean Adventures - The main intent of this topic is to learn about the plants and creatures of the ocean and about how we can help to care for our environment. This unit will begin with learning about the amazing plants and creatures of the ocean. The children will take part in ocean creature crafts and sort animals into their different habitats. They will read familiar stories including The Snail and the Whale and make story maps to show the characters incredible ocean adventure, developing their sequencing and storytelling skills. We will also conduct simple science experiments to introduce the children to some key scientific concepts related to water and the ocean, such as density, floating, sinking, freezing and melting.
