Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Welcome to our Waterbeach School Early Years Foundation Stage Page

We have enjoyed welcoming our new Leopards, Tigers and Panthers to school this term and are very impressed by how will they have settled into school life. 

Our First Half Term

We will begin the year with our ‘Getting to know School’ topic.

We will be learning lots about each other and will be talking all about ourselves. Everyone is special! We will be thinking about the differences and the similarities between ourselves and others. We will spend lots of time getting to know the environments and all of the different areas of learning. 


We will also be getting to know other areas around the school including the dinner hall, the gym, the forest, the orchard and the playground. We will also learn what about what the expectations are at school and will get to know the Golden Rules. During this term we will be reading lots of different stories and using what we read to make up our own stories.


Our Second Half Term

We will begin the term with our topic; ‘Traditional Tales’. We will be reading, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Billy Goats Gruff and The Three Little Pig. We will discuss each story, learn about the characters and settings and will be completing many activities related to these stories. We will of course read many other tradition tales during story times.  


We will also be learning about different celebrations including, Bonfire night, Diwali, Birthdays and Christmas.
