EYFS Hockney

Welcome to Hockney Class

Our Foundation Stage Class is made up of mixed age Nursery and Reception children. A well planned play-based, creative curriculum is key to our children's learning. Emphasis is placed on active outside learning all year round. Our outside areas have  been developed to allow for a broad coverage of all curriculum areas. A highlight of the week is 'Wellie Wednesday', when we don our boots and head off to explore the local environment. The small class size ensures that adults are able to work with the children in a relevant and appropriate context that matches the different needs of young children.

This week we have been helping 'Pirate Pete' work out one more than a given number and made nests for birds during Welly Wednesday. The children particularly enjoyed writing instructions about making a sandwich and then getting to make it and take it home afterwards! The reception children also had lots of fun making an autumn painting by using leaves to make a print.

It's been another busy week! We are so proud of how beautifully the children sang during Harvest festival! Thank you again to the parents who were able to help get the children to the church. The children have enjoyed making rubbings of trees during Welly Wednesday! The reception children used the Beebots to navigate around treasure island, and we have been looking at more and fewer in Maths. We also made our own signs and during letters and sounds we have tried to write a sentence!
