Early Years Foundation Stage
Hello and welcome to the EYFS web page.
There are always lots of exciting things happening in the EYFS but here’s a few things you need to remember:
- Monday afternoons: PE afternoon
Please remember to send your child’s PE kit into school
- Tuesday afternoons: Outdoor learning
Please remember to send your child with outdoor learning clothing
What an exciting term we have had, with so much amazing learning.“It has special windows and they were made a long time ago with pictures in” Sam S
Thank you to all who attended our 40 years of Kirk Fenton Celebration. We hope you enjoyed seeing all the fantastic church models created by the EYFS children. We were inspired by our visit to St Mary’s Church where we explored taking photographs, drawings and asking questions about what we could see. Back in the classroom we used our findings to create our own versions of St Mary’s Church using wooden blocks and Duplo.
Here are some of the comments made by the children about their models:
“This is the golden eagle, that’s where the vicar stands to speak to everyone” Evie
“It has a bench for the choir to sing on. The golden eagle is very special, it has a bird on” Nancy
“The half of a circle at the top is where the bell rings” Eli
I think you will all agree what a great start to the Christmas season it was with the EYFS Christmas Nativity. A big thank you to Friends of Kirk Fenton for providing refreshments. The children were all shining stars and a delight to watch. We couldn’t have done it without all the support at home practicing words and songs, so a huge thank you to you all!
Here are some quotes from the stars themselves:
“I like the angel song, it’s so calm” Nancy
“I like Donkey plodding, move your weary bones” Samuel
“I liked dressing up as an angel” Evie
“I like the graceful arms in the angel song” Alexa
At the end of Autumn term we visited St Mary’s Church again, where Reverend Simon kindly guided us in creating our own Christingles. During our visit we learnt a Christingle song, the meaning behind the different parts of a Christingle and shared a prayer while our Christingles were lit. Thank you to Reverend Simon for a wonderful afternoon.
