EYFS – Early Years Foundations Stage

EYFS is our Nursery and Reception classes.

In nursery the children have short daily carpet sessions when they learn more about Maths. Literacy skills are taught in daily. The class also have weekly P4C (Philosophy for Children) lessons. The children also have an RE lesson once a week, and will have a PE lesson with one of our PE specialist. Your child does not need a PE Kit in the Nursery class.

We send a reading book home every week. Please support your child as they develop their early reading skills by sharing the books regularly. The expectation is that children read five times a week. All children need a Moorfield Reading Folder to keep their reading book in. 


The learning in reception is very much based around the interests of the children but we have  themes throughout each half term that creates links to the world around them. For example in spring the children watch eggs develop and hatch and talk about new beginnings and in autumn the children look at all things autumnal and the celebrations held within Autumn and the changes to winter.

Our Observation System – We use the TAPESTRY system to record observations of the children. This is an online profile that gets updated by us which you can access. Please engage with our tapestry system as it is a great way to keep up with the learning of your children and share what you do at home. We love to celebrate this in class! If you are not already signed up to tapestry, please give your email address to the class teacher who will sign you up.

Year 1 & Year 2
This is where more formal learning takes place. In year 1 the children consolidate their phonetical understanding and take the national phonic screen in the Summer Term. Year 2 marks the end of your child’s time in KS1 and at the end of their time in year 2 they will sit the national SAT assessments in reading and maths as well as assessments in writing.
