Welcome to The Little Explorers 2020 – 2021


The EYFS curriculum...what is it all about?

Main body of text: This year as an early years foundation stage we decided to take part in the EYFS early adopter curriculum. This new curriculum does not become statutory until September 2021; we felt as a staff that it would be beneficial for both children and staff to begin working within these new objectives. The new early adopter statutory framework and Development Matters documents are below.



Homework will be sent out each Monday in your child’s bookbag. Please bring your child’s bookbag, reading books and homework back into school by the Friday, this will allow us the quarantine the returned items for at least 48 hours.

In your child’s reception bookbag you will find:

  • A levelled Read Write Inc. book – when appropriate
  • A fiction or non-fiction text to share with your child
  • A Story Time Snuggle reading record – please record what your child is reading at home in order for them to achieve a Reading Treasure
  • A Read Write Inc. reading help sheet for parents
  • An orange homework book – each week a new task will be set. As much as possible the homework will be a hands on learning experience
  • A Read Write Inc. alphabet help sheet – this sheet shows the image which goes with each letter, the handwriting phrase and some examples of red words (words which cannot be decoded)
  • A number line
  • A set of laminated Numicon pieces
