Intent
 

At Heamoor School, we believe that the Early Years Foundation Stage is crucial in securing solid foundations that children are going to continue to build upon throughout their school life and more. Children only have one ‘early years experience’ and we ensure we offer a broad and balanced education enabling them to the best possible start in life, as well as supporting them to reach their full potential. The new skills we support our children with are underpinned by the three prime areas outlined in the ‘Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage’:

 

  •          Communication and language
  •          Physical development
  •          Personal, social and emotional development

 

These prime areas are fundamental in allowing all children to develop curiosity, engagement for learning and to achieve their full potential.

 

Within the Early Years Foundation Stage, all pupils are encouraged to have a positive attitude to learning, and develop a passion for exploring their learning environment both independently and with their peers. Our stimulating and enabling indoor and outdoor learning environments are accessible to all children and provide children with unlimited opportunities to learn new skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through accessing one of 14 areas of learning within our classroom setting, and a further 10+ outside in our beautiful outdoor environment.

The curriculum in the Early Years enables our pupils to learn skills, acquire new knowledge and demonstrate their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development. Our topics run for 3/4 weeks, which excite and engage pupils, building on their interests and developing their experiences of their environment and the ever changing world around them. 
 
See the curriculum map below for a break down of the topics we cover.
