Information about our Early Year Foundation Stage (EYFS) Nursery/Reception
Our Nursery and Reception classes make up our EYFS. Children in these classes follow our EYFS curriculum which gives children a broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundations for good future progress through school and life. Our curriculum is language rich and each of our topics uses inspiring stories as starting points.
There are three prime areas of learning which are vitally important and underpin all future learning, which are:
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
There are also four specific areas of learning:
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Creative Designs
Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, by being active and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both inside and outside the classroom.
Our Reception curriculum is excellent preparation for Year 1 and beyond. Children develop appropriate independence and learning behaviours. They are taught whole class phonic and maths sessions as well as being provided with numerous opportunities to write.
