In Reception, children embark on a journey of discovery and exploration. We create a happy and caring environment where all children feel valued and safe and where they will have the opportunity to develop positive relationships with all the adults and children within our setting.
The Early Years Foundation Stage is a unique curriculum where children often initiate their own learning through play as well as engaging in planned topic led learning. Throughout the school day children will take part in whole class, small group and adult directed activities as well as having lots of time to access the provision independently.
The EYFS framework has never prescribed a particular teaching approach and the new framework holds true to this value.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is being reformed and there is a new EYFS framework that all schools and settings will have to follow from September 2021. These national changes have been made to better support all young children’s learning and development. It is also the aim that the new framework will better prepare children for the transition into key stage 1.
The EYFS framework includes 7 areas of learning and development that are equally important and interconnected.
The prime areas are:
· Communication and language
· Physical development
· Personal, social and emotional development
The prime areas are strengthened and applied through 4 specific areas:
· Understanding the world
· Expressive arts and design
There are some elements of the EYFS that have not significantly changed and some that have. Below are some of the key points from the new EYFS reforms that include relevant changes:
