Rose Street EYFS

Our EYFS at Rose Street consists of a Nursery (Ducklings) and 2 Form Reception unit (Puffin and Parrot). Each of our reception classrooms have approximately 30 children, and our nursery provides morning, afternoon and all day sessions, with spaces for up to 26 pupils in each.


Staff Members

Ducklings Nursery: Mrs N Page (EYFS Lead)

Parrot: Mrs S Moon

Puffin: Miss C Johnson-Deane




Our Reception day runs parallel to the rest of the school, beginning at 8.30am, and ending at 3.15pm.


A typical day in Reception includes:

  • Early Morning Activities and Register.
  • Little Wandle (Federation Phonics Programme)
  • Whole class input and Teacher Directed Activities (chosen by children).
  • Snack
  • Child Initiated (free flow between classes and outside)
  • Lunch
  • Guided Reading
  • Child Initiated (free flow between classes and outside).
  • Number input, story-time and home.


Our children are heavily involved in our planning, allowing them to take ownership and thus promote a love of learning. They are able to explore in any of our thriving classrooms during child initiated, and our outside area is open all year round.




The Nursery day is split into 2 sessions; the first is from 8.30am until 11.30am, and the second begins at 12.15pm until 3.15pm. A child with 30 hours provision attends 9.00am until 3.00pm.


Our daily routine consists of circle times, adult led activities, free play both indoors and outdoors during all weathers and a rolling snack bar. 


In our nursery we allow children to use their imagination and be creative by providing free flow play and access to all resources. This allows for the children to be in control of their own learning as they follow personal interests. The children have a variety of real-life and natural materials which provide open ended opportunities to explore and experiment during play. 


Our environment encourages the children to be enthusiastic about learning, this increases their enjoyment and involvement. During play adults will scaffold and extend, when appropriate, to create meaningful learning moments around the child's current interests and knowledge on the subject. 


We want to promote our nursery as a setting that focuses on the development of the whole child, ensuring when they begin the next phase of their life they do so with a positive self-image, an inquisitive mind, and have a true understanding of what is right and wrong, with the confidence to reach maximum success in the future.
