Early Years

Hello Foundation Stage parents and carers!


For those of you what are new to Rolleston Primary School, welcome! For those who know us already, welcome back!


This is the page that tells you what your children will be learning about this year. This will be built upon over the year. At the moment, it contains a long term plan that tells you about the learning intentions over the course of the year.


The EYFS is built around child-centred learning where there are plenty of opportunities for the children to learn by exploring the environment. Our skilled staff constantly monitor, support and extend your children's learning within the environment and during specific, focussed teaching. We also use Knowledge Transfer Centre as a synthetic phonics and reading system to get your children off to the best start in education and a hand picked Maths curriculum that prepares the children for the maths curriculum in year 1.


Please let us know if you have any questions about your child's learning. 




Follow your child’s teacher on Twitter to get regular LIVE updates on what exciting learning is taking place in class!  @MissHubertRPS , @MrBrownbill and @MissBaggottRPS

Blended Learning in Early Years


Children in Foundation Stage will be set daily tasks using Evidence Me. The tasks will be linked to phonics, maths and other areas of the curriculum. Parents and carers will be able to upload photos of the work completed for the class teacher to look at and this will build part of the child's learning journey.


Staff will also be having a daily check in session on Teams to chat with the children and talk about the work for the day. For children in our Early Years Foundation Stage, we know that learning happens best through play, where they can pursue their own interests and where they can explore, create and think critically. During blended learning, EYFS teachers will provide, via Evidence Me, a mixture of short, online lessons plus ideas for practical and creative activities that children and parents can engage with at home.
