Early Years Foundation Stage

Welcome to our new EYFS page!

Autumn Term

The children have been having fun exploring their new environment and settling into their new routines.

Train Ride

The children in Early Years have been exploring God's World, we talked about different ways to travel and decided to go on a journey by train.

The children went to the train station and met a conductor, where they were able to purchase their own tickets! Then we boarded the train from the platform and travelled all the way to Buxton. During the journey, the children explored the world around us, looking out to see what different things we were passing. When we arrived in Buxton we went to the Pavillion Park and explored the trees, plants and animals before playing on the park. 


The children has lots of fun and then enjoyed a picnic before returning to the station to travel home. What an adventure!


Dental Nurse Visit

The children in Early Years have been thinking about ways to stay healthy and look after their bodies. We invited Dental Playbox to school so that we could explore dental health. 


The children enjoyed the visit and learnt lots of new things! They were even allowed to dress up as dentists and dental nurses and and practise their brushing skills: 

Early Years save the day!

We have been reading Paper Dolls by Julia Donaldson. The children received a surprise visit from someone very special! It was a little girl with a set of paper dolls... she asked the children for their help with a problem! It seemed that a dinosaur had escaped from the pages of the book and was trying to take her paper dolls. The children decided they needed to try and capture the dinosaur so that it wouldn't eat anyone. They worked together and formed a plan...
