The Early Years Foundation Stage is crucial to developing the firm foundations to be built upon throughout our school journey and preparation for adulthood begins here.
Our aim is that EYFS develops the pupil’s key skills and core values of the school whilst embedding a positive learning journey in order for each pupil to achieve their full potential.
We focus on the prime areas:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
And The Specific Areas:-
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts
These areas compliment our WOW curriculum here at Weeton St Michael's. We implement these areas of learning by providing a safe, stimulating environment that allows children to discover, be challenged, consolidate and achieve their very best whilst developing their resilience and journey towards independence.
“Characteristics of Effective Learning”
“Playing and Learning”, “Active Learning” and “Thinking Critically” give the children the skills that they will continue to practise, repeat and master throughout their development and provide them with the foundations to develop the key skills identified in the higher milestones; problem solving, relationships, resilience, team building for example; in the later milestones as they develop and get older.
We get to know our families and children well and use their interests and knowledge to support and inspire our children’s knowledge and understanding of themselves, our local community and beyond
