The EYFS Curriculum

  • EYFS Classroom

What is covered in the EYFS curriculum?

The EYFS Curriculum Design

Our school curriculum is designed to give your child a challenging education that will unlock their potential and prepare them for the world's best universities. We want to encourage them to be ambitious from the outset in their education journey, and to thrive in an international and global setting.

 

Key Goals for EYFS Learners

Four themes underpin the learning and development that your child will take part in through the EYFS Curriculum which are:

  • A Unique Child - every child is a competent learner from birth and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
  • Positive Relationships - children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and carers.
  • Enabling Environments - the environment plays a key role in supporting and extending a child’s development and learning.
  • Learning and Developing - children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of learning and development are equally important.

 

Areas of Learning and Development

The EYFS curriculum is organised into seven areas of learning and development:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development 

We provide children with experiences and support which will help them to develop a positive sense of themselves and of others, respect for others, social skills and a positive disposition to learn. 

  • Communication and Language

Children’s learning and competence in communicating, speaking and listening is constantly supported and extended. 

  • Mathematical Development 

We develop children’s understanding of Maths in a broad range of contexts in which they can explore, enjoy, learn, practise and talk about their developing understanding. 

  • Understanding the World 

We support children in helping them to make sense of the world through offering opportunities for them to use a range of tools safely; encounter creatures, people, plants and objects in their natural environments; undertake practical experiments and work with a range of materials.

  • Physical Development 

The physical development of students is encouraged through the provision of opportunities for them to be active and interactive and to improve their skills of coordination, control, manipulation and movement. With our specialist Early Years PE teachers, our pupils are always supported in developing an understanding of the importance of physical activity and making healthy choices in relation to food.

  • Expressive Arts and Design 

Children’s creativity is extended by supporting their curiosity, exploration and play. Our pupils are provided with opportunities to explore and share their thoughts, ideas and feelings, for example, through a variety of art, music, movement, dance, imaginative and role-play activities, design and technology. In addition, pupils will also receive specialist teaching in Music

  • Literacy Development

Children’s learning and competence in beginning to read and write is constantly supported and extended. 

 

Core Subjects

Our curriculum builds a solid foundation for future learning, with a strong emphasis on high levels of attainment in the core subjects of Literacy, Numeracy, Science and ICT. Children are also exposed to Mandarin from Nursery up and the language acquisition is an integral part of our curriculum.

 

Our Approach in Teaching

Our teachers make sure that the activities are suited to each child’s unique needs and provide them through a range of hands-on activities, both indoors and outdoors, whole class and small group teaching and through structured play opportunities.

 

Other Learning Opportunities

In addition to academic learning, regular concerts, performances, and assemblies which parents are invited to throughout the year, add to the rich range of opportunities open to our children. We enhance their experiences further with trips, visiting musicians and artists as well as extra-curricular activities.
