Learning

 

Early Years Foundation Stage

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is a play-based curriculum for children from birth to five years, which allows children to explore and learn in an environment that is secure and safe, yet challenging. Within the EYFS Framework a skilled workforce provide activities and make assessments based on the seven areas of learning.

 

Research into early child development shows that children learn more rapidly during their first three years than in later life; whilst all areas of learning are important and inter-connected, the three Prime areas that are crucial for igniting children's curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, building their capacity to learn and form relationships and thrive. The specific areas will enable them to be self-motivated learners who are confident to succeed.

 

 

The 3 Prime areas include:

 

Communication and Language

This involves developing confidence in expressing their wants, needs and feelings and being able to speak and listen in a variety of contexts. 

 

Physical Development

This involves children being encouraged to develop control, coordination and movement. They are supported in understanding the importance of physical activity and how to make informed healthy choices at meal times.

 

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

This involves supporting children in developing respect for others, forming attachments and relationships and to develop their social skills and learn how to effectively manage their feelings. This area also supports the children in understanding appropriate behaviour and develops confidence in their own abilities.

 

 

The 4 Specific areas include:

 

Literacy

Encourages children to link sounds and letters and begin to read and write. Children are given access to a wide range of reading materials to ignite their interest.

 

Mathematics

Encourages opportunities to develop and improve counting skills, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems and to describe shapes, space and measures.

 

Understanding the World

Involves supporting children in making sense of the world around them and their community by providing opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.

 

Expressive Arts and Design

Enables children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as encouraging the sharing of thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play and design and technology.
