This is Opie, the cockapoo.  He was born on 6 May, 2020.  Opie loves to run on the beach.  On Fridays he comes to school to spend the day with the Tehidy class children.  He is friends with everyone and  a big part of the children's learning.  Some of the photos below exemplify how Opie gets involved with Tehidy the EYFS curriculum. 
During guided reading sessions, Tehidy Class children  read  Opie stories, putting into practice  the phonic knowledge they have gained in their daily Read, Write Inc. lessons.

Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage from the children and adults of Tehidy Class.


At St Uny Academy, the implementation of our EYFS curriculum ensures that our children can develop as independent, confident and successful learners.  We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework that sets the standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to 5.


Community is at the heart of our classroom practice; our children have high aspirations and understand the value of making positive contributions to the world around them. Our goal is to ensure that all of our children are happy and engaged.


Through our child-led curriculum, we provide an environment that allows each child to display high levels of concentration, creativity, energy and persistence. The rationale behind this is that high levels of well-being and involvement foster positive development for children and facilitate deeper learning. 


We believe that children should be able to lead their learning by initiating activities that are significant to them, derived from their own interests and ideas. Our curriculum is centred around our children; our EYFS team plan and enhance our classroom provision based on their knowledge of the children. In addition to this, and in order to broaden the experiences afforded to our children, our EYFS curriculum is enhanced each half term with a thematic focus. These themed activities are integrated into our daily classroom practice, with the aim of inspiring our children and enriching their daily learning.


Our EYFS curriculum enables our children to continually demonstrate their ability to:

  •      Play and explore
  •      Learn actively 
  •      Create and think critically
It is our hope that each of our children will be inspired and motivated to actively engage with our EYFS curriculum during their time at St Uny Academy; experiencing enjoyment and transitioning into Key Stage One with the confidence and skills to flourish as independent and resilient learners.
Below you will find our Curriculum Plan, which we follow through the year, alongside the children's own interests. 


This is Crumpet.  He is our class bear.  Crumpet goes home with different children each weekend.  Crumpet travels with The Everywhere Bear story book and his own diary, in which his host family can record his adventures.
Crumpet is a unique and special bear.  He is unlike any bear the children have at home because he is a shared bear.  Crumpet’s job in Tehidy class is multi-faceted.  He teaches children to take turns, share, anticipate and be patient.  Recognising that their turn will come, children learn to be happy for a class mate who gets to take Crumpet home each weekend.  We are very grateful to parents and carers for supporting this PERSONAL, SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL learning initiative.
