​​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.

    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: Ourselves


    ​​​This term EYFS will be exploring ourselves​, learning about, our bodies, families, homes and likes and dislikes.

    Homework QuestOur homework quest this half term is to design and make your own 3D home. What would your garden look like? What would your bedroom be like? Would it have any special features like a swimming pool?

    ​Homework Quests are due Friday 3rd November

    Here are some of the books we will be using to explore our 'Ourselves' topic. Everyone has likes and don't likes, loves and hates. What are yours?
