Welcome to EYFS

Snape Wood Primary and Nursery Schools' EYFS team are excited to join our classes Buds and Blossoms and Acorns on our journey to becoming successful learners. As a team we work hard to give our children the best possible provision and opportunities for learning in a rich an engaging environment. Our  team are keen and passionate about the possibilities and experiences we can provide for our children, giving them the chance to explore all areas of learning in a deep and purposeful way.


The unit will enable them to engage in a range of activities both independently and/ or with adults to support their focused learning.  However, during focused learning times such as; English, Phonics and Maths, children will still separate into nursery and reception classes in order access work at an appropriate level for both their age and academic ability. The units indoor and outdoor facilities have been tailored to the children's academic needs as well as providing a nurturing environment for them to grow into independent, confident individuals.
