Welcome to our Early Years Class
Our Class Teacher : Mrs West
When a child first starts school, they work towards Early Learning Goals, which give them a good foundation for future National Curriculum work. In Reception we have 7 Areas of Learning and Development. These are:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Communication and Language
The prime areas begin to develop quickly in response to relationships and experiences and run through and support learning in all other areas. The prime areas continue to be fundamental throughout the EYFS.
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Art and Design
The specific areas include essential skills and knowledge. They grow out of the prime areas and provide important contexts for learning.
Children develop quickly in the early years and early years staff aim to do all they can to help children have the best possible start in life.
On-going assessment is at the heart of effective early years practice and this can be seen in each child’s individual Learning Journey. Staff will observe children as they act and interact in their play, everyday activities and planned activities and learn from parents about what the child does at home. From these observations staff will support the child to strengthen and deepen their current learning and development and identify possible areas in which to challenge and extend the child’s current learning and development.
‘Come and See’ provides the basis of our RE curriculum and has PSHE integrated. Daily worship, regular attendance at Mass and the teaching of RE provides the children with opportunities to explore, reveal and respond to the curriculum as part of their learning.
