The New EYFS

This term sees the introduction of the revised EYFS curriculum. This changes little of the way in which we run but does change our expectations of the children. There are now seven areas of learning instead of six and these are divided into three PRIME AREAS and four SPECIFIC AREAS. This realises that children can only begin to address the specific areas once the prime areas are in place.
In addition to this change we, as staff, have changed the way we plan for our children. The planning is now on the white board in the playroom and can be viewed by anyone who is interested. It clearly shows how we are planning for the children through their interests and fascinations.
We will be introducing parent workshops in the near future to explain all of this more clearly and in greater detail, however, if you would like more information please speak to Paula Jenkins.
