EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE
Our nursery and reception settings are amazing places to learn and 'Bring It!. These spaces are created using a Reggio Amelia approach allowing all the 'areas of learning' to be delivered in a zoned classroom layout design. Children develop personal, social and emotional skills by playing independently, exploring their own ideas and interests using a set of specially selected resources which make up our 'continuous provision' offer. Teachers enhance this provision and model how to use the resources.
Reading is at the heart of our EYFS curriculum. Listening to stories, poems and rhymes feeds children’s imagination, enhances their vocabulary and develops their comprehension. They engage in focused teaching sessions with their teachers who impart knowledge and skills such as; phonics, writing, mathematics, and understanding the world. Mathematics teaching is a key component of the EYFS curriculum. Children learn about; the cardinality of number, counting and ordering and the beginnings of calculation and measuring.
In this way children are prepared for Key Stage 1 in a manner reflecting the 'Bold Beginnings - OFSTED Report' findings.
Proverbs 22:6 Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
