In Ahlberg, Donaldson and Rosen:
We smile together,
We laugh together,
We work together,
We learn together!
The children in Ahlberg, Donaldson and Rosen love to learn! Our Teachers: Miss Mcphee and Mrs Moscrop base learning around the interests of our children, so that learning is fun and exciting! The staff work very hard to create a learning environment that provides opportunities for exploration, challenge and achievement. We are incredibly proud of every child in our department! We celebrate children's learning and behaviour daily and love to hear about learning at home.
Please bring in pieces of work that your child has completed at home - we love to showcase learning and add these achievements to our Learning Journals.

Welcome to our Wonderful EYFS Department. This web-page is your window into your child's daily school life.
In December 2016 Ofsted said "Early years Provision is Good. The thoughtfully planned activities ignite children's curiosity."
We are extremely proud of every child in our department and each member of staff has been hand-picked to ensure that our children receive the best possible start to their education. Our Early Years Ethos is one of calmness, organisation and is underpinned by positive learning behaviours. We have a thirst for learning new things and staff professional development is key to the success of our department.

EYFS Byron Blue Maths Challenge
We are very excited that the children can take part in the Byron Blue challenge.
To gain their Byron Blue badges the children have to:
Badge 1: Count confidently from 0 to 20 and back from 20 to 0.
Badge 2: Recognise numbers to 20.
Badge 3: Know 1 more and 1 less than any number
We had an amazing day of learning opportunities when the 'Clever Cogs' learning street came to visit Byron Primary School again. The children had a fantastic time in the different role play areas, solving crimes, making their teachers look beautiful as well as creating super structures on the building site!!
Below are the sounds that we now know. You can practice these at home.
