Welcome to 

The Early Years Foundation Stage

We'd like to say a warm welcome to all the children and their parents. Please have a good look around our website, there are a lot of lovely photos of the fun activities we do in class and some helpful resources too.

The Foundation Stage team

Mrs. Hodgson, the class teacher.

           Mrs. Tyndall and Miss. Tyndall are the classes full time educational teaching assistants.



We are all looking forward to learning about new things this year. Please read our termly class newsletter and look at our long term/curriculum map to find more detail about what we will be covering as part of our Early Years Foundation Stage cross-curricular approach.


Please see 'dojo' for the weekly update of what we have been learning in class and WOW moments. 

As always, if you have any concerns, questions or queries we are always at the door to greet the children each morning as well as when we release the children into your care at the end of the day and available to speak to parents. Please feel free to approach us at collection or drop off as we are always happy to help.



Reception children enter school through their classroom door each morning and collected from this door at the end of the school day.  Staff will only let children leave with parents/carers or the regular grown up that picks them up. If a different adult is collecting them, please tell the Reception staff in the morning or contact the school office by 3pm.

Recommended Reading Books for

Reception Pupils

We are often asked what books to recommend that might suit a Reception pupil. Click on the link below to take you to a site with bags of ideas for suitable reading material.

Obviously, you know your child best; their level of reading ability and what subject matter might be best suited (or avoided) for their own individual needs and beliefs, but this site enables you to click on the book, gain further information about it and will even take you directly to an on-line shop.

Reception children are learning to read and these books are aimed at being books to enjoy together until your child is able to join in with reading some of the words.

Please note; we are not affiliated to the site in any way and the books shown are meant as serve as ideas for your children only . 


Reading resources
There are many fabulous reading resources online for you to access at home. one of my personal favourites is the Decodable comics.
