Thomas Jolyffe Primary School


 Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage

In Reception Class at Thomas Jolyffe Primary School we are committed to ensuring all children acquire the skills to be independent, confident, creative and resilient individuals. We consistently promote children’s Speech, Language and Communication skills and staff share an agreed understanding that a child’s emotional well-being underpins good progress and success for life.   

Exciting times ahead for you and your child!

In Reception class we use the month bands to support our teaching and learning. In the Autumn term we focus on both the 30-50 and 40-60 month bands. In the Spring term we would hope our focus would be within 40-60 months for most children.

In the Summer term we are working with the Early Learning Goals.
