EYFS - The Woodlands

Welcome to the EYFS Woodlands class page. We have three Family Groups in the EYFS. Mrs Parker is the class teacher for the Conkers Family Group and Mrs Frazer, Mrs Clarke and Miss Aga are our class teaching assistants. Mr Day is the class teacher for the Willows Family Group and Mrs Carrington and Mrs Allen are our class teaching assistants. Mrs Smith and Miss Wilson are the class teaching assistants for the Acorns Family Group in the mornings and afternoons. You can find lots of information about the EYFS Family Groups as well as keeping up to date with all of the exciting things that we get up to throughout the school year.

We have a very busy and exciting Autumn half term planned. We will be getting to know each other for the first few weeks - learning about our families, what we like doing and getting to know our new indoor and outdoor environments. We will be talking about our bodies, senses and looking at how much we have grown. We hope to have a visit from a newborn baby. 

Later in the half term we will be looking at the changes in Autumn and Autumn animals. This will involve visiting the next door park and collecting apples from the Orchard to make our very own apple crumble. We will be acting out the story of the Little Red Hen, making our own bread and receiving a visit from some real hens. 


We have 'Nature School' sessions once a week where we have a full morning or afternoon learning in our school ECO land.


Our RE topic will be, 'Myself' where we learn that we are all very special to God. We will be developing our special RE area and learning some special songs.     



In F2 we have PE lessons once a week and the children will need to keep their PE kits at school. The correct PE kit consists of: a white t-shirt and red shorts for indoor sports. Trainers are required for outdoor activities. Please ensure all clothing is labelled. 

All children will receive a school reading book to take home. These books will be changed once a week. Please try to ensure your child reads at home for at least 15 minutes each night and gets their home/school diary signed to indicate that this has happened. Please encourage your child to read other books at home as well.

For our weekly ECO land sessions your child will need waterproof clothing and sensible shoes.
