EYFS (2021-22)

Welcome to EYFS!

Welcome to EYFS, your first year at Bollinbrook and in school.

We want you to feel quickly part of the Bollinbrook family and hope that you find all the information you need on our website, however, if you have any questions regarding EYFS or anything school related please ask any member of the EYFS team who will be happy to help.

In EYFS we have a bespoke curriculum for the children in our school which progresses each term towards the children achieving the Early Learning Goals (ELG’s). We have over arching themes which we can predict will occur and we can teach, i.e. festivals and celebrations, seasonal changes, plant growth as well as other topics which 4-5year old children are often interested in such as ‘People who help up’ (doctors, nurses, firefighters, etc), dinosaurs, superheroes and much more. Each group of children are different (which is what makes being a teacher so much fun) and we like to tailor our curriculum to incorporate their interests which in turn increases their engagement with their learning.

Weekly Reminders

Monday – Music focus

Tuesday – PE

Wednesday – PE

Thursday – RE

We use an online learning journey to record ‘WOW’ moments and share what we have been doing in class with parents and carers at home. We welcome parents and carers to share WOW moments and key interests for their child with school (either through conversation or on Tapestry) so that we can incorporate these into our planning.

We look forward to working with you this year and helping your children to learn and grow in many ways.
