Early Years Foundation Stage

We believe that the Early Years is building the foundation blocks which paves the way throughout a child's education. There are 4 main themes that underpin the Early Years, 1. Unique Child, 2. Positive Relationships, 3.Enabling Environments, 4. Learning and Development. We also record on the Characteristics of Effective Learning and these are Playing and exploring, Active Learning and Creative and Critically Thinking.

The Early Years is split into 7 areas oflearning. We have Prime areas which are Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. Then there are Specific Areas which are Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. Each area of learning and development must be implemented through planned, purposeful play and through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activity. Play is essential for children’s development, building their confidence as they learn to explore, to think about problems, and relate to others. Children learn by leading their own play, and by taking part in play which is guided by adults. If you hav any questions please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team.

Magnificent me!

This half-term our topic is 'Magnificent Me'. We are exploring  our new surroundings inside and outside using our five senses. We will spend time talking about oursleves, our interests, our families and all the things that make us unique! We have already been busy painting pictures of our faces and making paper plate faces for some wonderful displays! Take a look at the photos of our first few days in Reception and Nursery!
