The situation in the NHS is very serious and the number of people in ICU is rising rapidly. We are improving our knowledge on how best to treat people in ICU thanks to research, but hundreds of people a day are currently dying. We must all take the lockdown very seriously. https://t.co/ByWz4ejwz5

Early Years Curriculum

In Reception, we follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage issued by the Department for Education (DfE).

The curriculum consists of seven areas of learning:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

There are then 17 Early Learning Goals (ELGs) which are part of these areas of learning. If a child achieves these goals by the end of the Reception year then they are said to be working at the expected level.

To support children with working towards these ELGs we use a document called Development Matters. This breaks down each goal into different age bands and is used by staff throughout the year to assess how close children are to reaching the goals.

Like the rest of the school, we also utilise a thematic approach to learning and the children learn through topics which encompass all seven learning areas of the EYFS curriculum. The topics are as follows:

 

Autumn 1

All about me – Ourselves and our families

Autumn 2

Glitter and Sparkle – Festivals and Celebrations

Spring 1

Goodies and Baddies – People who help us and Pirates

Spring 2

Fantastic Beasts – Mythical creatures and dinosaurs

Summer 1

Once Upon a Time – Traditional tales from around the world

Summer 2

Growing and Changing – Minibeasts and Lifecycles

 

All of the EYFS documents, and many other useful resources, are available from this website: www.foundationyears.org.uk


In the classroom

Early Years learning and development is provided through purposeful play and through adult led structures and routines that build confidence and provide intellectual stimulus and challenge.

Throughout the day, children have direct teaching sessions for maths, literacy and phonics, either as the whole class or in small groups. The rest of the time they take part in activities inside and outside the classroom.

Some of the activities are prepared by the teacher and will focus on specific objectives. The children are also able to choose activities from any of the other resources available.

Teaching staff engage with the children during these activities and help to support their learning and development. Children’s learning is assessed by observing what they say and do during these times. This is recorded and shared with parents.
