Our EYFS Curriculum
The EYFS curriculum at Childwall CE Primary School is a play based curriculum with an emphasis on developing independence, confidence, creativity, curiosity, knowledge and understanding. We provide a balance of child initiated and teacher led activities and provide meaningful, practical and multi-sensory learning experiences which fully engage all children and help them to develop ownership of their own learning. Below are links to the EYFS statements and early learning goals for both the prime and specific areas of the curriculum.
Welcome to our home learning section. The activities set will aim to consolidate the learning that has taken place in school and will allow your child to practise the skills they are learning.
The children have now received a reading book (which is carefully matched to their phonics phase) and a reading record book.
We will conduct a guided reading session using these reading books everyday and during these sessions your child will complete daily activities to allow them to practise their phonic and reading skills. Therefore, your child needs to bring their books everyday in their book bag.
The children will change their books once a week with their teacher and when this is done the teachers will write a note in their reading record book. Please feel free to make a comment in response to the teacher each week if you would like to. They will also read once a week with their Learning Support Assistant as well.
Please continue to regularly read and enjoy lots of other stories and other types of books at home with your child in order to help them to understand about characters, settings and main events.
Happy Reading Everyone!!
We will attempt to send home small tasks for the children to complete at home every Friday. Please return the completed work in their home learning folder on a Monday. If you are unable to complete the tasks over the weekend please return the folder and we will add the new pieces and return it to you so that you can complete the outstanding pieces at your earliest convenience.
We will look at your child’s work and it will be kept in the home learning folder so that you can return to it throughout the weeks to practise the skills learned.
Children Who Are Self-Isolating:
If your child needs to self-isolate, we would suggest that you should concentrate on helping your child gain independence and confidence. You can do this by encouraging your child to put on their own shoes and fasten the straps, dress and undress themselves, fasten zips and buttons on clothes by themselves, use cutlery when eating and take themselves to the toilet and wipe themselves.
You could also enjoy sharing stories together and talk about the storybook characters and the events that happen. You could practise singing nursery rhymes, counting rhymes and familiar songs. Children love spotting numbers and print in the environment and counting everyday objects like toys or stairs. Baking is always a firm favourite with young children so why not have a go at making some gingerbread people? Maybe you could listen to the story whilst they are baking. Or why not try making your own playdough and then moving along to the dough disco!!
Fine Motor Practise:
In school, we are focusing on holding our pencil correctly with a tripod grip and we are practising using scissors with the correct grip, with increasing accuracy. Why not have a go using the attached booklets to practise these skills at home?

Virtual Library – Come and explore our virtual library!
Once your child begins their writing journey we will encourage them to use their phonic knowledge to make an attempt at any unknown words. There will be many words that they cannot and should not be expected to spell correctly. Whilst learning at home it is important that you do not expect your child to spell all words correctly. The only exception to this are the tricky words which they will be learning in school. These words include I, no, go, into, the he, she, we ,me ,be.
Please find a link below for a CBeebies handwashing song to encourage the children to understand the importance of keeping their hands clean.
