EYFS Curriculum Information.
Here in reception we learn through play, build foundations for our learning and make memories that will last a lifetime. Our aim is to ensure children become confident and resilient learners. We learn in both our indoor and outdoor classroom through a wide range of child and adult led activities.
We follow the EYFS curriculum which is broken down into 7 areas of learning which are separated into Prime and Specific Areas, these include:
Prime Areas of Learning
- Communication and Language
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
Specific Areas of Learning
- Understanding of the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
All of the activities planned within our EYFS Key Stage are linked to these areas of learning.
We also pay close attention to the Characteristics of Effective Learning.
These are important life skills and attitudes which support children in being ready to face challenges, explore and extend their learning. These are:
- Playing and Exploring
- Active Learning
- Creating and Thinking Critically
These describe how children learn and we will often refer to these when discussing children's progress.
Phonics and Spelling in Reception!
We will be beginning to teach single letter sounds this week and would love you to point out letters in the environment to your children and talk to them about letters and sounds they already know e.g What letters make up their name?
What letters are on your road sign?
We will shortly post a list of key words and spellings for you to work on at home, Thanks for your support!
