Early Years Foundation Stage / EYFS
Welcome to Stone CE Combined school!
For those of you a little unfamiliar with Early Years and how it looks in a school setting, here is a very brief summary:
There are seven areas of learning and development that must shape educational programmes in early years settings. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.
These three areas, the prime areas, are:
- communication and language;
- physical development; and
- personal, social and emotional development.
We must also support children in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:
- understanding the world; and
- expressive arts and design.
As from September all children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 will be using the Read Write Inc programme, as part of their daily Literacy lessons. Read, Write Inc is designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers. Children will bring home storybooks matched to the sounds they know so they develop accuracy, speed and confidence.
We look forward to meeting you at the various events throughout the school year. However, we are always in need of Volunteers to help with maintaining Early Years resources and areas. Therefore, if you are able to spare an hour or two, either on a regular basis or sporadically, then please do let us know.
