Hello and a huge welcome to our new children in Wrens class!

Take a look around our class page to see all of the exciting things that we are learning each term.  


Our EYFS ethos

At Ironville and Codnor Park Primary school we believe that every child should be given the opportunity and support to develop and grow with confidence and kindness. Our team shows passion, dedication, and love to all our EYFS children to help them to achieve all their ambitions and reach for the stars!


Who's who?

Our EYFS team is made up of three lovely people, Mr Judge (Teacher), Miss Stevenson (EYFS TA) and Miss McCormack (Early Learning Friend). 



Our curriculum is ambitious and stimulating. We provide rich experiences which both mirror our children's previous experiences alongside creating new and enriching ones. Our curriculum is broad and we take a whole child centred approach. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to grow and develop in their way and in their own time. Please see the EYFS page on the website for a more detailed look into the new EYFS framework. 


Reading/ Phonics

Each child has a home a reading diary and two books. One is matched to your child's reading ability and one is for sharing. Please read the book with your child at least three times per week (they will then earn a loop on their reading chain. Who will make the longest chain?) and practice the phonemes and tricky words inside their reading diaries - more information about this is in their reading diary. Please also remember that your username and password for Bug Club or Reading Eggs will be in your child's reading diary and logging into this gives your child a range of reading and phonics activities tailored to their needs.

Storytime is one of our favourite parts of the day and sharing high quality stories rich in new vocabulary and phrases is loved by both children and adults.


Forest School

Forest schools are on a Monday afternoon with Mrs Castle and the children love this! They create wild art, clay sculptures, learn about their local environment and the wider world and have campfires with banana and chocolate as well as getting very messy while having lots of fun. We provide wellies for every child but if you would like your child to bring in theirs please name them and pop them in a bag and they can wear them. 



PE will be on a Tuesday and a Thursday so please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on these days and that everything is clearly labelled.



Creative homework booklets will be given out in September. They are lots of fun and consist of activities for you to do with your child as well as reading, maths and tricky word practice. Homework books are marked on a Friday. The more you complete the more points you get which turn into rewards! 


Water Bottles

Please can your child brings in a water bottle containing water and please make sure it is clearly labelled.


If you have any questions please phone the school and ask to speak with Mr Judge, Miss Stevenson or Miss McCormack.
