A message from your teacher...

Thank you for looking at our Early Years Foundation Unit Class page. We are a mixed class of nursery and reception age children. Below you will find any additional information you may need to help your child.

During their time in the Early Years Foundation Stage, your child will learn through lots of fun, practical activities that will help them to grow in confidence and support their development in all areas of the Early Years curriculum. 

We look forward to teaching your child and to meeting all of our wonderful supportive parents.

Thank you!

Early Years Foundation Unit Classroom Information


School start and finish Times

The doors open at school at 8.40am lessons begin at 8.45am. School finishes for nursery children at 11:45 and for Reception children at 3:15pm. Breakfast club is available every day from 8am for £1.50 per day.

Reading Books & Library Books

Reading books are sent home every day and must be returned daily. Please support your child with their reading at home daily. We will listen to children read in school too. We will send library books home weekly. This is a book that you can share with your child to promote their love of reading.


We use a communication tool with parents called seesaw. It is an app that you can download and keep up to date with school news and your child's learning. We post pictures often of what has been happening in class. We will also post homework on here and ideas about how to support your child's learning at home.


Physical Education is a vital part of our curriculum. We do PE every Thursday.  Please make sure PE kits are in school at all times, including green shorts, white polo shirt or T shirt and black pumps. Please make sure all items of clothing are labelled with your child's name. Nursery children only need pumps in school, in a bag with their name on it.


Lunch for reception children is from 12.00 - 1.15.  Lunch is currently free for children in Reception to Year two.

Additional Class Information

Reception will visit our 'forest'. Please make sure wellington boots are in school each week.

Individual children are rewarded with stickers for good work and behaviour. One child will be chosen each day to be star of the day and one child each week will be chosen to be star of the week. We play and explore outside in all weathers so please make sure your chil wears suitable shoes and coat.
