Early Years Foundation Stage

 

The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is based around seven areas of learning and development which are equally important and interconnected.  There are three prime areas which underpin the others igniting children's curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, developing their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, social and Emotional

These areas are strengthened and applied in four specific areas;

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

All children demonstrate different characteristics of learning, these are reported on at the end of the year.  These are:

  • Playing and exploring  - engagement
  • Active learning - motivation
  • Creative and thinking critically - thinking
