Welcome to our class page!
At Castle Primary, we believe that the Early Years Foundation Stage is crucial in securing solid foundations that children are going to continue to build upon. It is our intent that the children who enter our EYFS develop physically, verbally, cognitively and emotionally whilst embedding a positive attitude to school and learning. We believe that all children deserve to be valued as an individual and we are passionate in allowing all children to achieve their full, unique potential. With all of this in mind, we begin each new year by looking at the individual needs of our children and – taking into account their different starting points- we then carefully develop our flexible EYFS Curriculum which enables them to follow the path of their learning journey, at a point, that is suitable for their unique needs and stage of development.
Children follow the EYFS curriculum, which has seven main areas of learning.

A few reminders...
EYFS have been learning about Diwali, the Festival of Light.
We made Rangoli patterns in the sand, created our own Mehndi patterns and made divas out of clay. We also talked about the special food that people eat when they are celebrating Diwali.
EYFS Christmas wishes
Due to not sending Christmas cards between friends this year, EYFS got in the spirit of Christmas and created a tree from their handprints and wished their friends a 'Happy Christmas'.
People Who help us
Over the next few weeks we will be learning about the people who help us! We will be thinking about people around school who help us, including those who we may not have met much such as the office staff, cleaning staff and the lovely ladies who cook our dinners! We will then progress to look at people in different professions such as the roles of police officers, fire fighters, vets, doctors, dentists etc.
