Foundation Stage Curriculum
Our EYFS curriculum aims to work with parents and carers to enable our children to be:
Competent and creative learners; who are curious about the world around them.
Secure and confident; who enjoy coming to school and learning new skills and knowledge building on their existing learning.
Skillful communicators; who connect with others through language and play, ensuring that they play in a vocabulary rich environment.
Our Bumblebee and Dragonfly children will receive the teaching of early reading through systematic, synthetic phonics to learn to read words and simple sentences accurately. We use the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Programme.
- We strive to ensure that our children’s progress across the EYFS curriculum is good from their varied starting points and for children to reach the Early Learning Goals at the end of Reception and to be near National expectations.
- Class teachers use observations to make formative assessments which inform future planning and ensure that all children build on their current knowledge and skills at a good pace.
