We teach through a very play based curriculum where all areas of learning are covered through play both indoors and outdoors. We are always busy learning together during continuous provision time and we have whole class times for Literacy, Maths and phonics as well as times to look at the topics which interest the children. In Reception we follow the Revised Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, learning through purposeful play.

Topics are planned that follow the children’s interests, capture their imagination and develop their learning in the following areas:

  • Communication and Language
  • Literacy
  • Physical Development
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

The children engage in a range of activities that are based on first-hand experiences around these areas of learning which the children can access both inside and outside the classroom.

The following link is a guide about What to expect in the EYFS.
