Early Years Foundation Stage
Welcome to EYFS
Our Early Years Foundation Stage consists of Nursery and Reception. We offer 15 and 30 hour provision and all children in EYFS can attend our wrap around care from 7:45-8:45am and 3:15-6pm. We enroll Nursery age children from the day after they turn three.
We use the platform Tapestry to record observations of our children to capture learning and progress made. Once your child has been created a profile on Tapestry, parents will recieve an email to create their own account. We aim to work in partnership with our parents and welcome our families to upload photos and videos of home experiences, to share this with our staff. Follow the instructions below on how to access your parent Tapestry account.
At Saffron Green we follow the systematic synthetics phonics programme, Read Write Inc.

Reading for pleasure
To promote children's love of reading, children will visit our school library where a chosen book will be read to the class and children will take home a library book weekly. This is a book that may or may not be fully decodable but can be enjoyed with parents and family members as a book to read together.
We are very excited to welcome you to Saffron Green Primary school and cannot wait to get to know your child and support them during the start of their learning journey.
In the Autumn term, we will be getting to know each other and exploring ourselves, our bodies and making new friendships. We will also be looking at some very exciting topics throughout the term including festivals and people who help us.
We will start to develop our communication and language skills through role play, show and tell and team games, as well as develop our personal and social development through interactions with our peers, circle times and opportunities to explore our feelings and how these effect others.
In phonics, we will continue to develop phase 1 skills and introduce Set 1 sounds for sound recognition.We will also focus on listening and recalling stories, and build new vocabulary that reflects our new experiences.
In Maths, we will be learning all about classification. We will also be subitising and comparing numbers, identifying more and less!
Everything we do in the EYFS is build around play. Playing helps young children’s brains to develop and supports maturity in their language and communication skills. It is important to recognise the crucial role that play has in early childhood development.
