Reception

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: Mrs Moscrop, Mrs Khan and Mrs Hopkins 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.

"The first five years have so much to do with how the next 80 turn out!" Bill Gates

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.

Learning Journals
 
Your child's learning journals are always available for you to come and view at any time.
Please remember that you are welcome to contribute to your child's learning journey. In the back of the file is a star moment sheet (attached below), we would love to see what your child does at home and your involvement in creating this record of their time in Early Years is greatly valued. 
 
Also attached below is a Parent Voice sheet for you to make any comments about the file.
 
Thank you very much for your contributions!
