In our class we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. We have fun in a safe and secure environment and learn to the best of our individual abilities. To help us do this we plan from the children's individual interests, not only does this allow us to focus our planning to each child's stage of development but we believe the children learn best when it is exciting and relevant to them.
All our learning in Early Years is linked to topics and ongoing child-led PLODs (Potential Lines of Development) planning. Our learning area is always emerged in exciting topic themed displays and child led interests.
Reading- Please read with your child every night and bring book bags into school every day.

Development Matters in the Early Years - Here
We believe effective learning in the Early Years is the result of a balance between:
adult-led learning: this is led and managed by the adult and is typically planned to meet the specific learning needs of the child(ren)
adult-guided learning: this is where adults might support a child by guiding them (for example, by questioning and prompting, or by providing specific resources in an area of the classroom) and the child(ren) can independently practice or explore
child-initiated learning: this is when the child chooses where to go and what to do in the learning environment – it might look like play, but a lot of incidental learning can happen
Termly Topic: Around the World
This term EYFS will be exploring the different countries and cultures from around the world including London, Bristish culture and values.
