The Curriculum in the Early Years Foundation Stage

The Curriculum has been developed using the non-statutory guidance materials, Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The curriculum is planned around 6 half-termly topics and the UNICEF Rights Respecting School agenda.

The topics covered are as follows:

Ourselves,

Colour, light and festivals, Food,

People who help us, Animal stories

Fairy tales and superheroes.

Parents are informed termly about the content of the curriculum for that term.

The planned curriculum is developed through the needs and interests of the children in line with the overarching principles of the Statutory Framework of the EYFS seen below.

 

Framework and guidance can be found at www.foundationyears.org.uk.

Overarching principles

Four guiding principles should shape practice in Early Years settings.

 

These are:

 

  • Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self- assured;
  • Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships;

Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers; and

  • Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in Early Years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
