Welcome to EYFS


The children in EYFS are taught by Mrs Hodgkinson and Mrs Holden. 


Activities are planned so that the children enjoy a rich and diverse curriculum with a vast range of activities which are carefully tailored to children's needs and interests. 


P.E. lessons will take place on a Wednesday morning and Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure the children have their  P.E. kit and trainers on those days, ensuring all clothing items are clearly named. The children will engage in a range of activities throughout the year to develop their fundamental movement skills.


We have worship every day. This is led by Mrs Hutchins, Reverend Gary, staff from school or sometimes our worship team. This is a lovely time for us all to sing, pray, learn about our Christian values, local and global events and to share ideas and have time to reflect. Sometimes worship is in the hall with the whole school or sometimes it is in our class groups. We say a prayer at lunch time and at the end of the school day. 


We love reading at Cockerham School. We cannot emphasise enough the importance of sharing books together.  The children will bring a reading book home. The expectation is to read at least 3 times a week in order to develop their fluency and comprehension skills. Please ensure that your child brings their reading book to school every day. The children will be given tricky words to practise reading and then writing. These will link to the phonics phase that they are working on. Phonics home learning books will be sent home daily with activities to reinforce the phonemes learnt in school. Please send phonics books to school daily with reading books in the folder provided.


If you have any concerns or questions throughout the year, please feel free to contact Mrs Hodgkinson or Mrs Holden.
