To provide the Statutory Framework as set out below in a safe, fun and happy learning environment.
“The Early Years Foundation Stage promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills, providing a good foundation for future progress through school and life” (DfE Statutory Framework for the EYFS)
In Year R all children are taught in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in the following areas:
The 3 prime areas are:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
The 4 specific areas are:
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
A strong emphasis is placed on child initiated learning through the importance of play to reinforce all areas of learning. We believe that role-play and drama have a significant and positive impact on children’s learning and this is, therefore, included regularly in the teaching of the Early Years subjects.
What we do:
The children learn through a mix of teacher led, enhanced and child initiated activities. Please click below for details of the curriculum we teach throughout Year R.
