EYFS Environment

At The John Bamford Primary School, children in EYFS have access to a vast, stimulating environment where learning through play can flourish. JB Tots, Nursery and Reception work closely to share learning spaces and plan together. Please take a look around our school through our virtual tour.


Nursery and JB Tots


The Log Cabin is a quiet, cosy corner of the EYFS setting where younger children play and learn together. It also forms a base for outdoor learning when we visit our outdoor classroom.

In Nursery and JB Tots, we are fortunate to have a bright, large space where children can investigate and have the confidence to explore.



When children are ready to start Reception, they will be greeted with a similar natural environment and still have the opportunity to visit familiar areas like the Nursery Playground. Our Reception classrooms are open plan and spacious to give children an opportunity to explore and play with confidence. Due to the EYFS team working together closely, the EYFS learning space is fluid and this supports children when transitioning from one year to the next.

Outdoor Learning

Outdoor learning is integral to our curriculum in EYFS. We can explore the natural environment and get our daily physical activity through visiting our Outdoor Classroom, Forest School Area, Trim Trail and using our vast EYFS Playground.
