Welcome to EYFS

We are excited this half term to embark on a new chapter in Snape Wood Primary and Nursery Schools EYFS provision. As of the start of Autumn 2 our F1 and F2 classes will be joining to create a single EYFS unit. We feel that this gives the children the best possible provision and opportunities for learning in a rich an engaging environment. Our new staffing team are keen and passionate about the possibilities that the new unit will present for 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 access work at an appropriate level to 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.
