Message from Miss Knight 14.1.21

Hello Puffins!

I hope you are all staying safe and keeping well at home. Just a quick message to say I am so proud of how hard you have all been working at home! Whenever I receive an email with photos of the learning you are doing it makes me smile from ear to ear. You are doing so well so please keep it up!

I miss seeing all your lovely faces every day and I'm sure you must be missing all your friends. We will see each other soon, so for now, keep up the super work everyone, and keep sending me your lovely photos.

Love from Miss Knight xo

Please check here for daily updates on what we are learning at school and how you can support your child at home...


A considerable amount of our time in EYFS is spent in child initiated play, discussion and practical activities that develop the seven areas of learning. The following however outlines the explicit teacher led sessions that have been taught in school. Please ensure that your child keeps up with these where possible and reads on a daily basis.

Week beginning 18th January

The Weekly Challenge!

Each week we will post here a practical and fun activity that children can engage in together with their families, either throughout the week or at the weekend. Let us know what you think...

Look at all the things we've been doing at home!

Making playdough at home

Wake Up!

In Puffin class we do this dance first thing every morning (sometimes twice)! The children know it really well and never tire of it! They might like to continue with this routine at home.

Home play

Below are some examples of free play activities we facilitate in EYFS at E P Collier. Please use these ideas to assist your child to play purposefully at home in between the adult lead learning sessions. Exploration and play are paramount to children's development and so should be valued equally to the more structured learning sessions.


Let your child choose which type of play to engage in during different parts of the day, or help them to plan their own timetable (subject to the resources you and your child have access to at home). This will help them to plan and think more deeply about their play.

Week beginning 11th January
