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 "Seesaw", 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

Our EYFS team leader is Miss Noble who is also class teacher to Cherry Class.

What will the children be learning this half term?

Getting to Know Me, Getting to Know You!Settling into Chase Bridge Nursery, making friends and getting to know the rules and routines. Our main priority will be ensuring the children are happy and settled in their new setting which will in turn promote a healthy and positive learning environment.

Through free flow play we discover more about the children; their strengths and areas that may need some support.  After spending quality time getting to know them as individuals, we are able to engage them using their interests to continue their learning journey.

What will the children be learning this half term?

All About Me - Starting school, making friends and getting ready for learning. This topic begins with a focus on children’s personal, social and emotional development as we welcome them into life at Chase Bridge. We will support all children to settle quickly into their new classes and begin to make friends. The children will learn and follow classroom routines and rules, and learn the names of their new friends through circle time games.
