Early Years

During Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Reception, students explore, imagine and understand the world around them in a safe and structured environment. Our experienced Teachers plan activities and topics that develop each child’s curiosity for individual learning journeys. Teachers are attentive to the needs and wellbeing of each child and nurture them every step of the way, helping them, encouraging them and celebrating with them as they learn and develop. 

We inspire children to ask questions through challenging activities, stimulating experiences and by developing new skills that build a sense of achievement. This leads to delight in new knowledge and a commitment and enjoyment of learning for happy, confident and positive learners.

The EYFS curriculum is designed:

  • To foster exploration, curiosity and initiative
  • To promote social interaction
  • To build self-esteem and confidence in every child
  • To focus on the joy of trying rather than the product of learning
  • To develop feelings of independence
  • To stimulate the active expression of imagination

Each child is unique and develops at their own pace. Our aim is to encourage them to learn and challenge themselves. We support their successes and provide a dynamic and fun environment in which they can stretch themselves, learn at their own pace, become self-aware, feel proud of their achievements and enjoy learning.

From the child’s perspective, an EYFS curriculum should be full of wonderful and diverse real-life experiences. Children are often asked about their learning and we will always ensure planned activities and themes are motivating. Students feel happy, safe and secure at BST and blossom in their confidence and abilities.

Our highly skilled and knowledgeable staff provide a challenging and engaging curriculum. The emotional wellbeing, engagement, creativity, confidence and ingenuity of our students is central to our learning culture. In EYFS, our students encounter new experiences, learn new skills and develop their knowledge through 7 key areas:

 
Personal, Social & Emotional Development

Self-Confidence and Self-Awareness

Children are confident to try new activities and say why they like some activities more than others. They are confident to speak in a familiar group, will talk about their ideas, and will choose the resources they need for their chosen activities. They are able to say when they do or don’t need help.

Managing Feelings and Behaviour

Children talk about how they and others show feelings, talk about their own and others’ behaviour and its consequences and know that some behaviour is unacceptable. They work as part of a group or class and can understand and follow the rules. They adjust their behaviour to different situations and take changes of routine in their stride.

Making Relationships

Children play cooperatively, taking turns with others. They take account of one another’s ideas about how to organise their activity. They show sensitivity to others' needs and feelings and form positive relationships with adults and other children.

Communication & Language

Listening and Attention

Children listen attentively in a range of situations. They listen to stories, accurately anticipating key events and respond to what they hear with relevant comments, questions or actions. They give their attention to what others say and respond appropriately, while engaged in another activity.

Understanding

Children follow instructions involving several ideas or actions. They answer ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions about their experiences and in response to stories or events.

Speaking

Children express themselves effectively, showing awareness of listeners’ needs. They use past, present and future forms accurately when talking about events that have happened or are to happen in the future. They develop their own narratives and explanations by connecting ideas or events.

Physical Development

Moving and Handling

Children show good control and coordination in big and small movements. They move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space. They handle equipment and tools effectively, including pencils and pens for writing.

Health and Self-care

Children know the importance of good health, physical exercise, and a healthy diet, and talk about ways to keep healthy and safe. They manage their own basic hygiene and personal needs, including dressing and going to the bathroom independently.

Literacy

Reading

Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonics knowledge to decode words and read them aloud accurately. Children also read some common irregular words and demonstrate understanding when talking with others about what they have read.

Writing

Children use their phonics knowledge to write words in ways that match their spoken sounds. Children also write some irregular common words and write simple sentences that can be read by themselves and others.

Mathematics

Numbers

Children count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.

Shape, Space and Measures

Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.

Understanding the World

People and Communities

Children talk about past and present events in their own lives and in the lives of family members. They know that other children don’t always enjoy the same things and are sensitive to this. They know about similarities and differences between themselves and others, as well as among families, communities and traditions.

The World

Children learn about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things. They talk about the features of their own environment and how environments might vary from one another. They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur and talk about changes.

Technology

Children recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes and schools. They select and use technology for specific purposes.

Expressive Arts & Design

Exploring and Using Media and Materials

Children sing songs, make music, dance and experiment with ways of changing them. They safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function.

Being Imaginative

Children use what they have learnt about media and materials in original ways, thinking about uses and purposes. They represent their own ideas, thoughts and feelings through design and technology, art, music, dance, role-play and stories.

Assessment

Our teachers will assess your child on an on-going basis in order to understand their level of achievement and interests. Assessments are recorded against the EYFS age-banded objectives and the characteristics of effective learning.

Your child will have their own individual learning journal (Seesaw). Seesaw is an online learning journal that enables the capture and documentation of your child’s ongoing development and learning. It allows us to share this information with you regularly and enables you to respond and discuss these successes as they happen. Staff will upload observations, photos and short videos on a regular basis to build up a record of your child’s experiences and progress during their time with us.

Using the information from observations to inform planning, allows us to create a motivating environment for your child’s next steps in learning.

In addition to the learning journal, parents will also receive a report at the end of Foundation Stage. This report will detail your child’s progress in the early learning goals - these are the knowledge, skills and understanding that all young children should have gained by the end of the Reception year.
