Early Years

An Introduction to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)


Welcome to Butterflies

(Nursery and Reception)

We really enjoy getting to know all of the children and helping them become fantastic members of Capel St Mary Primary School. Butterflies EYFS class is a creative, fun and warm environment where the children can explore and learn. Learning new skills is so important in Nursery and Reception, however, we do a lot of our learning through continuous provision and child initiated activities. We support the children to develop new language skills, build and develop friendships, follow structures and routines and become independent learners.

It is really important that as a school we promote and teach the children how to look after our planet. If you have some spare time please take a look at the Woodland Trust website with your child and see how you can help the planet yourselves at home.
