Early Years Foundation Stage
We are EYFS and we love to learn through
investigating, exploring and play.
We follow the Early Years Curriculum.
We use Read, Write Inc to help us with our phonics, reading and writing.
Mathematics is taught through the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach.
What to expect when you walk in our classroom
“When children are relaxed and happy they do their best thinking”
Professor Julie Fisher
“Effective interactions are where the child gains something positive
that he or she did not have before”
Oxfordshire ACI Project
When you come into our classroom there are three learning experiences you could see: adult-led, child-led and adult initiated. Each of these has their own purpose and each requires different kinds of adult input.
Adult-led allows children to carry out activities that otherwise they may not be able to manage by themselves, such as cooking or scissor skills.
Child-led is where the child will direct and lead the play in any way they wish. It is based on the idea that we are naturally curious about our world.
Adult-initiated is where the adult will provide a safe and stimulating environment to explore and test their ideas.
Playing and exploring
Creating and thinking critically
