Welcome to the home page of the Foxes and Squirrels. We are looking forward to sharing some of our learning with you.
Meet the EYFS team
Mrs Smith and Mrs Syed are our Co-EYFS leads. Mrs Syed registers the Foxes and Mrs Fender registers the Squirrels. Mrs Smith will be joining us on a Thursday afternoon as well as Fridays.
Mrs Towsey, Mrs Down and Mrs Lamyman are our teaching assistant team working with the Foxes and Squirrels.
Today, the Foxes and Squirrels were very lucky to have a visit from Mr Allen, who very kindly brought along his super racing car and lorry for us to have a look at! Mr Allen told us all about his racing car and about his work as a Mechanic; he also told us that he has won 100 races! The children really impressed Mr Allen with their knowledge of the different parts of a car and how a car works. What a treat for our Foxes and Squirrels!
A Visit from a VetThis week, the Foxes and Squirrels had a visit from Claire, a local vet. The children told Claire all about how to care for animals; she was very impressed! Claire reassured us that we were doing everything right when caring for Dale, our EYFS guinea pig. Claire also gave Dale a check-up; she checked his eyes, teeth and nails. After giving his nails a quick trim, Claire was happy that Dale was in good health! Claire was also joined by a furry friend, Rufus, a lurcher. He was so gentle and placid; the children thoroughly enjoyed stroking him gently and Rufus definitely enjoyed all the love and attention that he received from our lovely Foxes and Squirrels!
