Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

The EYFS is based on 4 overarching principles which shape good practice in early years settings:

  • A unique child
    Every child is a unique. Β They are consistently learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
  • Positive relationships
    Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
  • Enabling environments
    Children learn and develop well in environments where their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and yourself as a parent and/or carer.
  • Children learn and develop in different ways and at different rates
    The framework covers the education and care of your child within the early years setting, including children with additional needs.

 

The activities and experiences that we provide for your child will underpin the skills they need to work towards the Early Learning Goals in the following 7 areas:

Prime Areas:
β€’ Communication and language
β€’ Physical Development
β€’ Personal, social and emotional development

Specific Areas:
β€’ Literacy
β€’ Mathematics
β€’ Understanding the World
β€’ Expressive Art and Design

What to expect, when?

The purpose of this booklet is to help you as a parent/carer find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their first five years, in relation to the EYFS.

The document includes information about your child’s next steps and ideas of how you can support them in each area of learning.

Some useful websites to support Nursery learning at home

 

In Nursery, we provide a curriculum to develop the whole child. Children learn by first hand experiences, for example, doing, touching, making and seeing for themselves through play. Their social, emotional, creative and physical development is catered for by the various play activities which we offer at Nursery.

We have a fantastic Elmer the elephant reading area and the children are enjoying reading stories together. We have been talking about what the author and the illustrator do.

The children were very busy making poppies for our β€˜In November we remember display.’ We gathered together to say a prayer for all the people who have died in service for their country.

We also enjoyed making Pudsey bear stick puppets and raising money for Children in need.
