Hello and welcome to the Bluebells class page! We are happy, caring and hard-working class with a love for learning new and exciting things. We love coming into school every day to see our friends and teachers and to get stuck into the range of activities within our busy learning environment. We enjoy engaging in the hands-on activities, showing off our creativity, imagination and problem solving. We are working very hard to develop our resilience this year so that we can become independent and motivated learners who thrive in the face of challenge! 

We have such an exciting and magical year ahead of us and we can’t wait to take you along on our learning journey! 

Reading is one our favourite parts of the day in Reception! We love our calming story times when we can dive into a magical book and get whisked off into an exciting tale. Our favourite story in the Bluebells is ‘How to catch a Dragon’ we find it really funny when the troll says ‘Pickernicker’. You will often find us sitting in our reading area where we share our favourite stories with our friends. 

This year, we will be reading the following texts throughout the year: 

– The Busy Little Squirrel 

– The Little Red Hen 

– Owl Babies 

– Room on the Broom 

– The Three Little Pigs 

– The Gingerbread Man 

– Jack and the Beanstalk 

– Handa’s Surprise 

– The Night Pirates 

Our goal this year in the Bluebells is to have as many Bookworm winners as possible, so we are going to work together to read 5 times every week!

Statutory testing 

At the end of your child’s Reception year, you will receive their school report. This will include details on how your child has performed against the Early Learning Goals. The EYFS profile is completed for every child at the end of Reception. It is used to inform you about your child’s development and to help the Year 1 teachers to plan and prepare accordingly for your child. 

The EYFS profile is a summary of your child’s attainment and is not a test. It is based on the Teacher’s knowledge of your child and observations of what they are able to do. The profile is used to measure your child’s attainment against the 17 Early Learning Goals (ELGs). In your child’s EYFS profile, for each of the ELGSs, they’ll be given one of the following statements: 

  • At the ‘expected’ level of development 
  • At the ‘emerging’ level of development (They haven’t quite reached it yet) 

If your child is at the expected level of development within the three prime areas of learning as well as Literacy and Mathematics, they will have attained a ‘good level of development’’. 

If your child isn’t at the expected level of development, the Reception and Year 1 teachers will work together to decide how to best support your child for the transition to KS1 and the coming year. 

More details about the statutory framework for the Early Year’s Foundation Stage are available on the Department for Education web 

 

Hello and welcome to the Little Acorns class page! Our class is an extremely magical place to be and we love being a part of our acorn family. Each and every acorn has a special role to play in our class jigsaw puzzle, we share our interests, celebrate our differences and most of all, we respect each other. Every day brings exciting new adventures, we are independent learners and show this in our busy in and outdoor provision. We are creative, enthusiastic and resilient; there are some engineers of the future in the corn class. We work hard to be the best we can be, we follow the rules, encompass the Eaton Park values and tackle any challenge with an ‘I can do it’ attitude!
