The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the statutory framework that all early years settings must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well. In school this refers to both the Nursery (Ladybirds Class) and Reception Year (Butterflies, Bumblebees and Dragonflies). It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children are ready for school and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.
The revised framework for the EYFS has been implemented from 1 September 2021.
The framework can be found here Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) - Schools. We teach this framework through topics that excite the children; we gather their ideas through mind-mapping and plan according to their needs and interests.
The Curriculum for Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) in all maintained schools has been reformed by the current government. We aim to teach as much curriculum content as possible through our topic themes, however, some subjects are taught discretely where this is not possible. Our curriculum and topics are enhanced each term as much as possible through visits, workshops, theatres and so on.
The National Curriculum can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-primary-curriculum
Within each subject there are a range of skills and knowledge to be taught, as well as teaching the application of basic skills in English and Maths through other subjects, i.e. reading in all subjects, measuring and recording methods in Science etc.
Our curriculum Long Term Plans can be viewed below.
