EYFS

New Reforms – Early Years Foundation Curriculum Overview

Prime Areas

Communication and Language

(Listening, Attention and Understanding/Speaking)

Physical Development

(Gross Motor and Fine Motor Skills)

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

(Self- Regulation/Managing Self/Building Relationships)

This involves giving children the opportunity to use their spoken language to express themselves in a language rich environment, through conversations, role play, story telling and media.

 

This is a prime area of learning and supports the seven areas of learning.

This involves teaching children the importance of living a healthy, happy, and active life.

To develop gross motor skills, children will be given the opportunity to develop their core strength, stability, balance, and spatial awareness using a variety of small and large apparatus using the indoor and outdoor environment.

To develop fine motor skills, children will use a wide range of small tools to develop control and proficiency in drawing, cutting, colouring and letter formation.

 

PE is taught by our specialist PE teachers. Children are provided with opportunities to develop Fine/Gross motor skills daily throughout the setting.

 

This involves giving the children the opportunity to develop strong, warm, and supportive relationships with adults in the setting as well as learning how to make friendships, co-operate and resolve conflicts peacefully. The children will be supported in managing their own emotions and taught to develop a positive sense of themselves as well as learning about self-care, healthy eating and managing their own personal needs.

 

This is a prime area of learning and is integrated into all areas of teaching and learning across the setting.

 

Specific Area

 

Literacy

(Comprehension/Word Reading/Writing)

Mathematics

(Number/Numerical Patterns)

Understanding of the World

(Past and Present/People, Culture and Communities/ The Natural World)

Expressive Arts and Design

(Creating with Materials/ Being Imaginative and Expressive)

This involves developing a ‘love for reading’ and encouraging children to begin to become independent writers. The children will listen to a wide range of text such as stories, poems, rhymes, and non-fiction text which will ignite their interest and develop their vocabulary, word reading skills and writing for a range of purposes.

 

Our topic is planned around a variety of literacy texts which provide rich vocabulary, exciting experiences and a range of reading and writing opportunities. Literacy and Phonics sessions are taught daily.

Reading and writing is integrated in ‘child-initiated learning.

This involves developing a positive attitude and interest in mathematics where children are encouraged to talk about their work and have a go as well ensuring that children have a strong grounding and deep understanding of using numbers to 10.

The children will be given the opportunity to practise and improve their counting skills, learn to subitise, and understand the value of numbers, calculate simple addition and subtraction problems, talk about the pattern of numbers, and describe shape, space, and measures.

 

Maths is taught daily and is integrated in ‘child-initiated learning’. It involves the use of practical apparatus to help understand mathematical concepts before learning to record in pictorial and or abstract ways.  

This involves enriching and widening children’s vocabulary by guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community. Children will be given the opportunity to talk about personal experiences. They will listen to a broad selection of stories, non-fiction, rhymes and poems which will enable them to foster an understanding of our culturally, socially, technologically and ecologically diverse world as well as find about religions, places, nature, animals, people and our immediate and wider environment.

 

 

This involves developing children’s artistic and cultural awareness and supports their imagination and creativity. The children will be given the opportunity to use a wide range of materials and media to express themselves and talk about what they feel, see, and hear as well as engage in role play with their peers.

 

Music and Dance sessions are taught by our specialist teachers on a weekly basis.
