The EYFS curriculum is broken down into seven areas of learning:
There are three ‘Prime’ curriculum areas in the EYFS curriculum; Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Physical Development and Communication and Language. These three areas underpin the learning in all other areas, laying the foundations for more ‘academic’ learning. If a child can’t share, take turns, follow instructions or listen attentively it makes learning to read and write much more difficult.
At the start of each term parents and careers receive a curriculum letter outlining the kinds of activities their child will be experiencing at school and suggesting ways they can give support. It can be difficult to be specific about this as we plan from the children’s ever-changing interests. Our Tapestry online learning journals give our parents and careers a flavour of what has been covered in class during the week and may include questions to use as a prompt when talking about school with their child. Parents and careers can also upload and add their own learning experiences from home to our online learning journals.
