Welcome to EYFS
Welcome to Early Years at Harrow Lodge Primary School, you are about to embark on an amazing learning journey with us. Early Years is a vibrant and stimulating learning environment where learning is all around you! Early Years provides the stepping stones to encourage and enthuse you for the rest of your school life.
We believe in the importance of children following their own interests and leading their own learning through accessing our indoor and outdoor environment. Our highly skilled staff, observe and identify key moments that take place as children access our high quality provision. And even though we have only been attending school for two weeks, we have already explored, Venus Fly Traps, Stars, Spiders, litter in the ocean and magnets. Children really are inquisitive little learners; they particularly enjoy curiosity corner that is bursting with a variety of mysterious objects, objects that promote their questioning skills.
We have an exciting year planned and can’t wait to watch the children develop. We will keep you regularly updated throughout the year.

Why are there stars in the sky at night? Does everyone go to bed at the same time as me?
While I am asleep, what else is happening? What kind of non-human creatures might be exploring while I am tucked up in my bed? Are there really people out and about doing jobs?! Surely rest and sleep is very important for our health – when do those people get to rest?
Let’s explore these questions and more in this project about night time.
We are so proud of the way that your children have settle into their Reception classes. They have been very busy exploring their new environments. Here are a few photographs for you to look at, which shows just how settled and happy they are.
