Welcome To EYFS
All children learn through play with a mixture of child-led and teacher-led learning opportunities. Learning takes place both indoors and outdoors. We introduce different topics which the children explore through a variety of mediums, including books, art, clay, drama, music, ICT, craft, and model making. Numeracy introduces different activities, such as counting gamers, weighing activities, and measuring, and is also taught daily. By the end of the Reception, the children are enthusiastic confident learners, who are ready for the more structured, less play-based, environment of Year 1
The Four Principles of the EYFS
“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfill their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life changes.” (Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, 2014)
There are four guiding principles that shape our practice.
A Unique Child
Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident, and self-assured.
Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents, and/or carers
Learning and Development
Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
