EYFS (Reception Class)
Early Years Foundation Stage (FS2) Curriculum
We are an Early Adopter School
Specific aims of EYFS
- To give each child a happy, positive and fun start to their school life in which they can establish solid foundations on which to expand and foster a deep love of learning;
- To offer each child a wide range of new and exciting experiences and give them the opportunity to consolidate, explore and test them out along with their own, individual experiences;
- To enable each child, through encouragement and high expectations, to develop, to the full, socially, physically, intellectually and emotionally.
- To offer a structure for learning that has a range of starting points and unlimited opportunity for development;
- To encourage children to develop independence within a loving, secure and friendly atmosphere;
- To support children in building relationships through the development of social skills such as cooperation and sharing;
- To help each child to recognise their own strengths and achievements through experiencing success and developing the confidence to work towards personal goals.
The Reception follow the curriculum as outlined in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS 2019) handbook, which is available from the school office or can be downloaded below. This clearly defines what we teach.
