Our children are able to join us as Little Wrens, in our 3-4 year old preschool provision before moving into our Reception class in September. Children are also able to join us from other pre-school settings. Until July 2018, the majority of our children experienced their pre-schooling at Wrenbury pre-school before it closed and the school opened Little Wrens (September 2018), Little Wrtens is located in our main school building in our EYFS provision.

Prior to starting school, we host a New Starters Parent's Evening to introduce our staff, the setting and the provision we offer for our new starters. These are very successful events.

From September 2018, transition between EYFS1 and 2 will be seamless. Where new starters are coming from different pre-school settings, prospective new starters will be able to join us on a number of occasions prior to starting to help get them ready for the transition to Base 1 from their pre-school setting.

Little Wrens (EYFS1) and Reception (EYFS2) follow the same developmental curriculum made up of the following:

Prime areas

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development

Specific areas

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

We build on each child's prior learning when they join us. We baseline our children on entry to know their starting points. Our EYFS teacher and teaching assistant then plan a wide range of learning opportunities for the children to make at least good progress across each school year whilst in the Early Years Foundation Stage. We use the Learning Book to track each child's progress in the Prime and Specific areas (incorporating 17 areas for development) that make up the EYFS curriculum. We aim for each child (where possible) to achieve a Good Level of Development (GLD) by the end of the Foundation Stage, ready for starting the KS1 curriculum.
