Early years foundation stage
In the Early Years Foundation Stage children learn best when they experience learning first hand, through meaningful interactions with others, through physical activity and through play. Our Early Years practice is based on on-going observation and assessment of the children and their interests. We believe the best outcomes for children’s learning occur from either child-initiated play, actively supported by adults or focused learning, with adults guiding the learning through playful, rich and experiential activities.
LONG-TERM CURRICULUM PLANNING: EYFS
Our Long Term Planning in EYFS is informed by the following documents:
|A tailored version of Development Matters, produced by our staff for
planning & assessment purposes
|EYFS Outcomes (DfE)|
These documents have been used to set out a two year cycle of long term planning (A & B) in Nursery and Reception. Each document plans the objectives we want to cover each half term using the non-statutory guidance from Development Matters (see above) and the topics used to engage and promote the children's interests and needs.
