Mrs. Taddeo and Miss Knight are eagerly awaiting the return to school of all Tehidy Class children on 8th March, 2021!  It will be so lovely to get the whole class back together and learning in school.  We have lots of exciting learning planned for the rest of the Spring Term.  Meanwhile, see below for a taste of some of the exciting things you have been up to during lockdown.
Happy New Year!
We were so looking forward to welcoming the Tehidy children and their families back in the first week of January 2021.  Ii is with heavy hearts, however, that we now find ourselves in the midst of yet another lockdown.   
For the time being, the majority of children are learning from the safety of their own homes.  As parents ourselves, we are well aware of the considerable challenges this presents for children, parents and carers and we are extremely grateful for all the the effort you are putting into this endeavour!
We are doing our up most to make home learning accessible, flexible and managable for you..  You will find a bank of resources, activities and home learning challenges to support you in the home learning section of this website.  Please see the weekly Tehidy Home Learning grids.  We will be keeping in touch with you through regular phone calls and through your Tapestry Learning Journal.  We will also be trialing informal Teams meetings with small groups of children.
Meanwhile, we will be thinking of you all and looking forward to welcoming you back to the Tehidy classroom sometime in the not too distant future.
Keep safe and well and, above all, keep smiling.  We miss you all!
Love Mrs. Taddeo and Miss Knight

EYFS (Tehidy)


 A very warm welcome to Tehidy Class from Mrs. Taddeo, Miss Knight and Tehidy Class of 2020!  We want all children to feel happy, safe and confident in school.


In the EYFS children learn through a play-based curriculum and receive a good mixture of adult led and child-initiated activities daily. Child-initiated play supports children in having ideas and being in control of their learning. It enables them to learn through first-hand experiences, allowing them to choose how to use the resources to do so. Adults play an important role in child initiated play. They provide a safe environment for the child to explore and test out their ideas. Adults may use the child’s interests or next steps to develop play through offering a breadth of opportunities or resources for the child to use in a variety of ways. Child-led activities may start out as an adult initiated activity, however, by allowing the child space and time; the child may extend the resources and ideas given to create their own experience. Adult led activities build on child-initiated activities, to extend further learning opportunities, enable sustained shared thinking to take place.


EYFS children also participate in short, focused teaching and learning within small groups.  These include Read, Write, Inc. (daily phonic-based reading) and hands on practical math sessions.   Children take home reading books and library books to share with their families.  They also enjoy using our wider school grounds during weekly Nature Explorer sessions, which enable them to become confident explorers of the wild outdoors!
