Early Years Foundation
Intent: The EYFS is a crucial time in a child’s life as it is the beginning of their understanding of themselves and their world. It is the time when their curiosity and fascination begins, and it is vital that these attributes are encouraged and developed so that every child loves to learn, values the importance of life-long learning and is self-assured, confident and resilient to do so.
Learning is separated into three terms with three overriding themes; All About Me, My Home and My World. Jolly Phonics is used to develop children’s reading skills and this is embedding across all learning, every day as well as being taught specifically so that reading begins at an early age. All classes are very well resourced to support the development of all areas of learning including children’s physical, expressive and emotional development.
