At Worlebury we strongly believe that Early Years education is the foundation upon which young children build the rest of their schooling. It is a holistic education that encompasses all learning and development so that 'no child gets left behind'. This is the purpose, nature and management of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at Worlebury Primary School. EYFS is available to children who enter school from September of the academic year in which they will turn five years old. These children are in the final year of the EYFS. In the National Curriculum this is referred to as the Reception Year, or YR. To read the full policy please look at Policies under Key Information.
The Reception children at Worlebury have a fenced off area from the main playground which forms part of their 'outdoor learning environment'. They have access to this area throughout the day. For more information on the Reception Curriculum, please visit our Curriculum page under Key Information.

Please share reading books at least 5 times a week and record your progress in your child's reading log. We audit all reading logs weekly to support you and your child's development and issue house points accordingly. If you require any help and support with home reading, please see Mr. Gill. Additional support videos can be found below.

Weekly 'Show and Tell' home learning is shared weekly through Class DoJo on each Friday during term. Weekly themes are displayed in the termly 'curriculum parent booklets' found above. (These carefully selected tasks support your child in speaking, listening and consolidating topics and themes.)

Reception Learning Diary
We have been celebrating Diwali. Though our learning theme of 'Winter Wonderland' we have been comparing Christmas to Diwali. We have discovered many similarities such as spending time with families and playing games, eating special foods, giving and receiving gifts and decorating our houses with lights, patterns, shapes and decorations. We also learned the story of Rama and Sita.
Hello all! It gives me great pleasure to formally welcoming you and your child to Worlebury St. Paul's Church School.
Tomorrow sees the first day of Term 1 with our new intake and we hope your child is excited to start new adventures!
Tomorrow is the final 'Stay and Play' session for your child's group. We encourage school uniform to help with routines. PE Kits and book bags can be brought in on THURSDAY as we begin to help children organise their personal belongings. They are also encouraged to bring in a bottle of water.
We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!!
Mr Gill and the EYFS Team.
