The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the stage of education for children from birth to the end of the Reception year. It has it’s own curriculum based on the recognition that children learn best through play and active learning.
The curriculum aims to develop the children’s skills, knowledge and understanding, and provides the basis for future learning. It is not just concerned with what the children learn, but with the Characteristics of Effective Early Learning, it considers how they learn. The children will develop and progress through milestones as they work towards the Early Learning Goals. The Curriculum is divided into three prime areas:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Communication and Language
And four specific areas:
- Understanding of the World
- Expressive Art and Design
PE will be every Tuesday and children will need to wear appropriate clothing to school on this day.
We are very lucky to have two members of our Nursery staff trained in Forest School provision. Nursery attend the Forest school area within the school grounds at least once a week. Children have the opportunity to explore the woodland area and develop individual interests. We also provide opportunities for making sparks with fire steels, cooking on the fire, bug hunts, nature trails, using tools and much more!
We do provide waterproof trousers and welly boots so the children can have plenty of fun and enjoy the mud!
We’ve provided a link to download a copy of the application form needed to register your child for a place with us together with a copy of our EYFS Prospectus which provides with further information about what we can offer your child when they join us.
As always, if you have any queries or you just want more information, then please do contact the office on 0117 9030050. We are always happy to talk with you.
