Mrs Ishmael, Mr Lawrence (Gwithian) and Mrs Thompson (Godrevy)
Welcome to our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
We are a very happy team who love to engage the children in investigating, exploring and developing learning both in our classrooms and out.
We have two early years classes at our school and we are named after our favourite local beaches – Godrevy (taught by Mrs Thompson) and Gwithian (taught by Mr Lawrence). At Treloweth, we believe that early education is so very important and we are lucky to have three teachers and four teaching assistants in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Our classrooms are bright, exciting and welcoming environments in which to learn. Displays and learning opportunities reflect our interests and our learning journey.
We regularly invite our parents and families into our unit to share our learning and find out what we have been doing.
At Treloweth, learning takes part inside and outside the classroom. Our outside area provides opportunities and experiences to learn across the curriculum areas. We also involve the children in Forest School activities through visits to the local woods and beaches. We explore the changing seasons and learn about our natural local environments. We compliment our learning through participating in a variety of other trips throughout the year.
We begin each term with a main theme, with the children's help and ideas, we explore, investigate and plan how our topic will develop. Examples of our planning are below.
In the Early Years, we believe learning should be full of opportunities, first-hand experiences and fun.
We very much look forward to welcoming you into our classrooms as we share your child’s learning journey together with you.
Every Monday, children from our EYFS classes visit Tehidy Woods for outdoor learning. This week, twelve children accompanied Mr Lawrence and Mrs Sciascia and had a great time making camps, building dens and following a trail. The highlight of the afternoon though, was hot chocolate and biscuits!

We made potions after reading Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson.
Keeping children safe in school is the most important role we play. If you have any serious concerns about any child, please speak to Mrs Walpole or Mrs Stoddern.
