Early Year Foundation Stage- EYFS

In Nursery and Reception we base our learning around stories wherever possible. Although Early Years has a separate curriculum to KS1 and KS2, we ensure that what children learn in EYFS links to their next stage of education.

In EYFS all areas of learning are covered during continuous provision. Children are taught the Prime Areas in the morning which includes: Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Physical Development. Children also have weekly music and computing lessons in Reception. To ensure that we support children to know more and remember more we focus on a specific area of learning each week.

In Nursery and Reception we use birth-5 development matters which is a non-statutory guidance to support teaching. This support leads to the ELGs which are statutory for the end of Reception.
