This large room is divided into areas
corresponding to the Early Years Foundation stage covering the seven areas of learning and development. We address these areas using various topics throughout the year in order to make learning exciting and interesting. Your Child will be developing constantly through play and investigation building good foundation skills required on entry to School. These seven areas shape the educational programme in early years. All of these areas are important and connected, they are crucial for igniting Childrens' curiosity and enthusiasm for knowledge, building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.

Communication and language development involves
giving Children opportunities to experience
a rich language environment, to develop
their confidence and skills in pressing
themselves, and to speak and
listen in a range of situations.
Physical development involves providing opportunities for young Children to be active and interactive, and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.
Personal, social and emotional development involves helping Children to develop a positive sense of themselves and others, to form good relationships and show respect for others, to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings, to understand appropriate behaviour in groups, and to have confidence in their own abilities.
Literacy development involves encouraging Children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children are given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems and other written materials) to ignite their interest.
Mathematics provide Children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, and to describe shapes, spaces and measures.
Understanding the world involves guiding Children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places and the environment.
Expressive arts and design involves enabling Children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas andfeelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance and role play.
Key Workers consider the individual needs, interests and stage of development of each Child in their care and use this information to plan a challenging and enjoyable experience in all areas of learning.
