EYFS

Children in our Early Years follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS).

The EYFS Curriculum has seven main areas of learning – 

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development 
  • Communication and Language 
  • Physical development 
  • Literacy (Reading and Writing) 
  • Mathematics (Number and Shape, Space and Measure)
  • Understanding the world 
  • Expressive Arts and Design

A practical, playful approach to learning, based on the needs and interests of our children, is delivered mainly through topic based planning. We teach children individually, in small groups, in classes and in whole cohorts. Through a combination of teacher input and continuous provision opportunities, learning is planned to encourage children to develop their learning independently through exploration and challenge.

The Characteristics of Effective Learning are at the heart of the Early Years Curriculum and explore the different ways in which children learn. They highlight the importance of playing and learning, active learning and thinking critically. All the learning experiences we plan for the children allow them to utilise and develop these skills. Our learning environments, both inside and outside, are stimulating and exciting, and relevant to the needs and age/stage of our children.  All of the resources are easily accessible in order develop children’s ability to access the curriculum independently.

We look forward to sharing all of our exciting learning with you over the next year.

Please check back regularly to see what we have been doing.
