Our Early Years Foundation Stage classes may well be your child’s first experience of sustained contact with adults and children outside your close family and circle of friends. We hope to make the transition from home to school a positive and happy experience for children and their parents.
The two Early Years classes are open plan, with activities arranged across both rooms and the shared outdoor area. Children are encouraged to make choices and decisions in their learning and develop a sense of independence in preparation for work in the coming years.
In the EYFS, children start to learn phonics which provides the building blocks to later success in reading. At New Park, we learn phonics daily in EYFS and KS1. We use Read Write Inc as part of our approach to phonics. As a new parent, you will be invited to parent workshops in EYFS where we demonstrate how your child will learn phonics. If you have any questions, just ask your child's class teacher.
