Couldn’t agree more! 👏 I’ve felt very grateful over the last few weeks. Knowing there was a team taking care of the ‘other’ stuff meant I got to focus all my attention on staff, pupils & families. https://t.co/AXARoWFnNR

As a frontline doctor in London - you really really need to take this seriously - it is bad - it is really bad - already - and it’s predicted to be worse by next weekend - too many people really don’t get it yet - stay indoors!! Seriously!

I saw an article on this over half-term (maybe yours) and I have now started this at my school! Teachers are grateful and I get to indulge my passion of reading aloud! We shared Pirates love underpants, which even ks2 laughed at and The Twits!

Very sad to hear about the passing of one of our Heroines, who died today aged 101. A NASA pioneer and gifted mathematician, she paved the way for women and people of colour to be given credibility in the scientific arena. https://t.co/aUf6dMMTCu

Reception

We are fully committed to the purpose and aims of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation (2014) which clearly states: 

‘Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high-quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.’ 

Our Early Years Foundation Stage aims to create a happy, caring, secure and stimulating environment for all children; we do this through:

  • Encourage confidence, independence and a desire to learn; (having quality interactions and provision through our Steam Curriculum)
  • Focus on the development of every child as an individual, valuing and building on their previous experiences and responding to their individual needs; (Objective led planning)
  • Work in partnership with parents and carers; (daily communications at drop off and pick up, tapestry, class Do-Jos, the weekly newsletter and twice a year parents evening meetings)
  • Develop in children an enquiring mind, an interest in learning and an enthusiasm for the next stage of school life; (cultural capital and the characteristics of learning embedded in our STEAM curriculum)
  • Provide good foundations for later learning; (WRI phonics STEAM links to the EYFS Curriculum)
  • Encourage good social relationships, developing self-esteem and respect for others. (zones of regulation)

The Four EYFS Principles 

The statutory framework is based on four guiding principles which shape practice in our Early Years Classes. These are: 

1) A Unique Child 

2) Positive Relationships 

3) Enabling Environments 

4) Learning and Development
