EYFS - Reception



Term 3 Nativity


We are sadly having to postpone the nativity performance again until we are all back at school. We will let you know the revised date for the performance as soon as we are confident it will go ahead. In the meantime, please recap a nativity song a day so that the children remember the lyrics ready for the performance. You can find these on the document below. We know how much of a special moment seeing your child perform is and we want to make sure that we give the children that opportunity. Thank you so much for your understanding and support 

Andrew Lloyd-Webber is putting on some famous musicals in the West end and he wants YOU to take part! All you have to do is film yourself singing one of the songs, send in your clips and some will get the chance to be included in the show. To find out more click the link above. 

Welcome to EYFS


We would like to say a big 'hello' and welcome to the Academy of Cuxton Schools. We are, Mr Worsfold, Miss Robinson, Mrs HollingtonMrs Mussellwhite and Mrs Chapman .  The teachers plan together and share ideas and expertise but due to Covid-19 we are keeping each class separate. We take turns each day to use the outside area and we keep to separate sides of the playground at playtimes to keep ourselves and our friends safe. If you wish to ask us anything or pass on any information at all, please feel free to approach any member of the EYFS Team frown




Support for parents!


You will find a number of resources available for you to download, or a link to follow, for ideas to support your children at home.

Reading incentive scheme 


Following on from our successful introduction of the reading books and the online rising stars book scheme in Term 1, we wanted to thank you for your enthusiasm and engagement. It really will make a huge difference to their reading ability as they get older. We wanted to remind you of the things you can do to help and to tell you about our reading incentive scheme that the whole school follow.  

You may have noticed numbers at the side of your home reading journal tallying up the amount of times your child has read at home or at school. Every read counts so please make sure you remember to write in the journal when your child uses rising stars too. When your child reaches a certain amount of reads (see below), they will receive a sticker and a shout out by Mrs Aldham-Breary in our virtual celebration assembly every Monday.  

Bronze sticker: 25 reads 

Silver sticker: 50 reads 

Gold sticker: 100 reads 

Ways you can help your child to read 

  • Please continue to learn the sound cards that are sent home every Friday. Please practice these every day (about 2 minutes).  

  • Your child should read at least 3 times per week with the levelled reading book and/or rising stars online reading scheme. 

  • Try to read a book more than once to help children develop confidence, a deeper understanding of stories and fluency.  

  • Read bedtime stories every night for enjoyment as this builds children’s language, understanding, speaking and reasoning skills 


If you have any questions, please talk to your class teacher who will be happy to help.
