Early Years Foundation Stage
We believe that children have the right to an education and that they learn best through play and first-hand experience. We use our skills, experience and understanding as Early Years Educators to ensure that children are encouraged to become lifelong learners who are enthused about their learning.
At College Green School & Services we are informed by our guiding principles to create magical experiences for the children. We understand that children are active learners, that learning is a social and collaborative and that the role of the adult is crucial. To this effect we aim to demonstrate through all aspects of our work our commitment to the four themes and principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage:
The EYFS includes the characteristics of effective teaching and learning. These highlight the importance of the child’s disposition and attitude to learning and ability to engage in exploration, play and creativity across all areas of learning.
The Three characteristics which we use and promote as learners behaviour:
In the EYFS there are 7 Areas of Learning and Development, these are split into two distinct groups :
The Prime Area
The Specific Area
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
Developing children’s confidence in communicating, speaking, listening, and expressing their ideas and experiences.
Encourages children to be healthy and active and develops their skills, co-ordination, control and movement preparing them for writing.
We are a Rights respecting school. Children are encouraged to develop a positive self-image and to respect others.
The specific areas include essential skills and knowledge. They grow out of the prime areas, and provide important contexts for learning
Developing love of books enjoying looking at texts in the environment, and mark making.
Allows children through practical means to solve problems and develop an awareness of numbers, counting and calculating, shape, space and measure.
3. Understanding the World – People and Communities, The World, Technology
Children explore the world around them, communities, living things, changes, construction and ICT.
In this area children will be experiencing art, music, movement, dance and imaginative role-play.
