                  Welcome to Periwinkles!


Summer is fast approaching and as it does please can we send a gentle reminder to parents that  children will need hats and water bottles as we will be spending so much time in our outdoor learning environment!


A donation of £1 pr child for a universal suncream would be much appreciated so that we can ensure all children have suncream on before outdoor play and so that we are not wasting valueable learning time by using 33 different creams. If you have any questions about this please see a member of staff :)

Our new topic is Space!  Keep your eyes peeled for our new and improved role play area, can anyone guess what it might be? We are reading and creating a story map for Aliens In Underpants Save The World. Can you ask your child how much they can retell to you with our special actions?


We are also spending a lot of time in our outdoor learning environment embracing all of the changing weathers! We are experimenting and exploring with our new outdoor resources, ask us what we learnt outdoors today!

What is the Early Years Foundation stage?

  • The EYFS has been developed by the government.
  • It caters for the care and eduactional needs of children between the ages of birth to five years old.
  • It is a statutory requirement.
  • It ensures that all children have a happy, active, exciting, fun and secure experience.
  • It enables all children to learn and develop in a stimulating environment.

The EYFS is split into 7 areas of learning.

Prime Areas

  • Communication, language and literacy
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development

Specific Areas

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the world
  • Expressive arts and design


We provide the children with access to milk, water and fruit. During the morinngs we have rolling snack which include a variety of different foods which is charged at £1 a week. This allows us to introduce different foods which children will not have tasted before. As the year progress' the children also have the opportunity to prepare their snacks for the class. We encourage this to support them with their personal, social, emotional and physical development.
