EYFS 2023 - 2024


Welcome to Explorers and Inventors! Here are some important pieces of information for you about Explorers and Inventors -

In Explorers, our teacher is Miss Dixon.

In Inventors, our teacher is Miss Corell. 

Our teaching assistants are Miss Hesmondhalgh, Mrs Siekanska and Mrs Patel.


PE is currently on Thursday for both classes.

Please ensure your child has a full kit in school at all times (white t-shirt, black shorts or joggers and black pumps). As always, please ensure everything is named and in a named bag. Please note NO JEWELLERY is allowed to be worn in school. 


Please send your child’s bag in every day. They are part of your child’s uniform so please keep them in good condition and do not allow your child to deface them in any way. Reading books will be changed on a Tuesday & Thursday. Please try and read any book with your child every day for at least 10 minutes, it is such a lovely way of ending the day cuddled up with a book.


Homework will be given in a variety of ways including the use of online platforms. 

Engaging with your child’s learning will help them make the best possible progress this year. It can be simple things like ensuring they read every day, and encouraging your child to tell you about the book they are reading.

Wellington boots

Your child will have access to the outdoor area and will use this daily as part of their learning. We will be out in all weather! Please provide wellies and send them in with your child’s name on. These will be kept on our welly wagon at school. 

Water bottles

As you know, it is really important that children have access to water during the school day. Please send in a water bottle for your child, ensure it is plain water and that the bottle is named.

Class Dojo

Thank you for joining! Dojo is a great way for us to keep each other informed. We will update Dojo regularly with photos and posts for our class. Please check it regularly as we often send out reminders or messages as we have a very busy school life here at St Stephens!

School Life

In Explorers and Inventors we aim to develop the whole child through a well planned curriculum that engages and motivates children to learn. We observe closely and gain knowledge of what each child can do and what they are interested in. We then enhance our environment to support children's interests.
