EYFS Curriculum

 

Early Years Foundation Stage

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.”

Fred Rogers

At Thorpedene Primary School and Nursery we believe the EYFS marks a critical time in a child’s early development. Within the Early Years we want our children to be caring, confident, independent and curious learners. Every child is at the heart of the curriculum; their interests and development are paramount in insuring every child achieves to their full potential.

We believe children learn by having a go, exploring, investigating, listening, talking and discussing inside the classroom and outdoors. We spend time learning a variety of life skills linked to the needs of our children to ensure they are independent citizens ready for the world ahead. We want our children to have a love of reading, be excited by numbers, a desire to help others and to build on their creativity and emotional wellbeing.

We work in true partnership with our families to ensure we provide a rich and stimulating learning environment in the EYFS. Together we ensure our children in the Early Years have the best start in their education at Thorpedene Primary School and Nursery.
