Early Years Foundation Stage
Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which includes Nursery and Reception.
All our learning is through play–based activities in the 7 areas of the curriculum both inside and outside the classroom. As well as this, in keeping with EYFS good practice and ethos, we also continue to respond to children’s interests and ideas and incorporate them, where possible, into our curriculum and learning.
Our creative curriculum is taught through a series of themes which enable and encourage pupils to make links across subject areas through meaningful and relevant activities. The length of each theme is flexible and is not fixed by terms or half terms so the school learning sheets are linked to the theme and not the term.
As always, we encourage children to contribute to our themes in school and children may be invited to bring in topic-related items of interest.
Independence is encouraged at all times alongside the children learning to take turns and share with their friends.
