About the EYFS at London Fields Primary
Welcome to the Early Years section of our school website. Here you will find information about how we organise the classrooms and teaching and learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage at London Fields. We have one Nursery class and two Reception classes.
Our Nursery is made up of (approximately) 26 full time places and 8 part time places (mornings or afternoons). Our spacious Nursery area has adjoining bathrooms, a kitchen and gated outdoor garden. The garden comprises of a mud kitchen, water area and climbing wall which are enjoyed by pupils alongside many other resources to support their learning and development. The nursery pupils also have access to the bigger playground (used by Reception). In this larger space, children enjoy using the bikes and scooters and having their own ‘running lane’.
In Nursery, lunch is served in the classroom where there is a family style service (with a choice of a school dinner or packed lunch).
Our two Reception classes are made up of 30 children each. The classrooms are next to each other with direct access to the playground. Children access both the classrooms and the outdoor area throughout the day during continuous provision. The large outdoor area comprises of a mud kitchen, water area and construction area. Children have access to bikes and scooters. Large gazebos offer shelter from the sun in the Summer Term. We also have an outdoor reading area to promote reading for pleasure.
In Reception, children eat in a small, Reception only dinner hall and are served by the Reception staff.
All EYFS children (and parents/carers) are greeted at the classroom door and are dismissed similarly at the end of the day. Entry for all EYFS pupils is via the Sheep Lane gate.
