We are an Early adopter school for the new Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS 2020). This means that we will be following the new curriculum a year early and will be following the new 'Development Matters 2020'.
During our time in the Reception class we learn the importance and joy of being part of our school community, by joining in with school routines and events. By the end of the year we are confident, independent and firmly established within school life.
During the day we learn through play, exploring and discovering from all the learning areas in our classroom.
These 7 learning areas include:
Prime Areas - Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, and Communication and Language
Specific Areas - Numeracy, Literacy, Understanding the World, and Expressive Arts and Design
Reading is a very important part of the Early Years curriculum, so we spend a lot of time enjoying listening to and joining in with a variety of stories. A strong grasp of phonics helps us to become independent readers.
