Early Years Foundation Stage – EYFS

The overreaching aim of the EYFS is to help pupils achieve their full potential by delivering work through 4 distinct but complementary themes:

A unique child
Positive relationships
Enabling environment
Learning and developing

Children in EYFS will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge, and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development. The three prime areas underpin the basic building blocks for development. These are:

Communication and language
Physical development
Personal, social and emotional development
These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning.

As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:

Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design
These 7 areas are used to plan each child’s learning and all activities will be suited to each child’s unique needs and interests. Children will work towards achieving Early learning Goals within these 7 areas.

Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active and through creative and critical thinking; which takes place both indoors and outside.

Play underpins the curriculum provision. Most children play spontaneously, although some may need adult support. It is through play that they develop intellectually, creatively, physically, socially and emotionally.  Reception follows Little Wandle Phonics scheme and use phonically decodable books arranged in progressive book bands for reading.
