How we learn in EYFS
Daily guided activities are also planned to cover different areas of the EYFS curriculum and allow children to develop their next steps in learning. Through observation and discussion, areas of need and next steps are identified for all children to ensure good progress is made. Staff in the EYFS make regular observations of the children’s learning to ensure their next steps are met. Bespoke personalised learning and interventions for groups or individuals of children are also implemented and monitored on a daily basis.
To support our wider curriculum, we provide regular opportunities for parents and carers to come into school and work with their child, share their work and celebrate successes. We keep parents informed and we meet regularly with them to ensure children’s transition into school and through the EYFS is happy and allows them to reach their potential with the support needed. This includes transition days, nursery or home visits, stay and play sessions, parent workshops, wow moments, reports and parent meetings.
Parents have the opportunity to meet with new teachers and visit their child’s new learning environment. We also support the transition into Key Stage 1 for both child and parents. We prepare children for Year 1 with visits to their new class and meeting the teacher.
