Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum
In our Reception Class, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, which supports children’s development in the 7 areas of learning. Although the class will follow themes and topics, we don’t have a fixed topic cycle. Instead, our EYFS teachers will adapt their planning based on the children needs, interests and progress. The year might typically start with a topic about ‘Ourselves’ as the children get to know each other and settle into their new environment, then go on to explore personal, local or topical themes. An example of a typical year can be found in the example below.
We use Tapestry Online Learning Journals to track children’s learning and share it with parents and carers. Each child has their own login, where parents and carers can see what they’ve been doing in school and add their own comments or observations about their child’s learning at home.
