Early Years at Hurdsfield - Providing solid foundations for future success!
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) really does do what it says... it provides the foundations for success and future learning with our youngest children.
At Hurdsfield we believe it providing our children with the absolute solid foundations needed for their future academic and social success. As providing children with the effective tools and skills needed for further success is so important for all children, the development of our EYFS is a key area of school development and investment this year in both physical resources, staff training and challenge for all pupils.
Our team is led by a highly experienced EYFS leader, Mrs Powell who is ably supported by her team including Mrs Moores, Mrs Cowburn, Mrs Whittaker/Mrs Smith, Mrs Hancock and Miss Duncker.
The active involvement of Parents and Carers in their children's early education is of paramount importance. Right from the first day, we strike up a partnership which will last for the remainder of your child's time in our EYFS and school. We have a range of mechanisms to support and engage our families in their child(s) learning including...
Tapestry - Online Learning Journal
Tapestry provides safe and secure communication between school and home and allows your child's achievements to be shared with you as parents as well as us as their school. Each Parent/Carer is provided with a unique log on code which allows them to see observations of their child(ren) within the EYFS setting. Tapestry also have an app; making access easier and smoother for all of our families.
Read, Write Inc.
From September 2019, we will be launching a new way of teaching phonics and early reading based on Read, Write Inc. We are working closely with Lacey Green Academy English Hub to roll out this way of working across our Early Years and Year 1 class and have invested in new decodable readers and resources to ensure that this is a success.
