The EYFS Framework explains how and what your child will be learning to support their healthy development.

Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development.

Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:

  • Communication and language;
  • Physical development; and
  • Personal, social and emotional development.

These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning.

As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:

  • Literacy;
  • Mathematics;
  • Understanding the world; and
  • Expressive arts and design.

In Foundation Stage, we use an electronic learning journey called Tapestry.

Through this secure site you we will be able to see all the exciting things your child has been doing while in school. You can also contribute to your child's learning journey by following the link above. 

Please feel free speak to a member of staff if you need any support with uploading pictures to Tapestry. 



Your child will have 3 individual reading books per week for you to read/share at home. Please make sure you return your child’s reading books on a Monday ready to be changed.



Over the year, children in Reception will be given phonics homework to support their individual level of learning. This may be sounds to learn, letter formation to practise, words to decode or tricky words to read.
