Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which is how the Government and early years’ professionals describe the time in your child’s life between birth and age 5. This is a very important stage as it helps to prepare your child for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their early years’ experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs.
Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside.
EYFS and Resilience
EYFS have been exploring numbers and quantities through nursery rhymes.
Early Years have been learning about why some people wear poppies and have created a lovely window display to say thank you to the armed forces.
Happy Socks Day – Following on from our Happy Socks Day, EYFS have been reading Simon Sock and learning how we are all special, all unique and that we can all be a good friend to each other. We even managed to work it into our maths looking at patterns, similarities and differences.
EYFS have been exploring favourite stories set in different parts of the world.
