Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum

Children in the Reception class follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This curriculum is divided into seven areas of learning and development. There are three prime areas of learning and four specific areas of learning.The three prime areas of learning are;

  • Personal, Social, Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development

The four specific areas of learning are;

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive art and design


In each of these areas the children’s learning is supported by well planned activities which enable the children to have first hand experiences where they are able to explore, consolidate and develop their learning.   The children’s learning takes place in both the indoor and outdoor classrooms.   In each classroom activities are adult led and child initiated.  The children’s progress is closely monitored by observing them undertaking their own activities and during adult led activities. This information is used to plan further experiences which are engaging, motivating and progressive.  Each child’s progress is recorded in their own Early Years Foundation Stage Profile.  This profile records their progress in each of the seven areas of learning and their characteristics of effective learning.  Evidence is collected from several sources including long observations of the children at school and notes or photographs from home and school. Phonics is taught throughout Reception and Key Stage 1 following letters and sounds.  We do not have a preferred specific reading scheme but instead use a wide range of books from a variety of schemes differentiated through the Book-Banding system.  More information about the Foundation Stage can be found at the Foundation Years website.
