Welcome to The Puffins Class

Mrs Dinsdale teaches the EYFS children in this class. She is supported by Mrs Goacher and Mrs Sutton (Nursery Nurses) and Mrs Golden, who is a Teaching Assistant.

Our Class Charter:

We will play nicely, doing things together and sharing our toys. We will be kind and nice to others and always be friends. When we are hurt or sad we will help each other and make each other happy. We will always try our very best.

Starting school is an exciting time, but can sometimes feel a little daunting for both children and parents. At Flamborough School we aim to provide a caring, safe and happy environment for your child to grow, develop and learn. The Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework provides the curriculum for children’s learning in Reception and is based around four key themes: ‘a unique child’, ‘positive relationships’, ‘enabling environments’ and ‘learning and development’, all of which underpin our practice and provision.

There are seven areas of learning within the curriculum:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development
  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • understanding the world
  • expressive arts and design

Our classroom is carefully planned and resourced to provide a rich and stimulating environment, which encompasses all of the areas of learning, for the children to explore and learn. Our highly experienced team of Early Years staff provide a balance of teacher led and self-chosen activities, through indoor and outdoor provision, which enables the children to learn new skills, develop independence and further their interests and creativity.

If you would like to discuss anything regarding your child starting school, please contact the school office who will arrange for Mrs Dinsdale, our EYFS teacher, to speak to you.
