From Early Years to Year One

The end of the Early Years Curriculum journey is almost upon us as we approach the end of Reception.

As we reflect on when each child joined us, some in Pre-Nursery, some in Nursery and some this year in Reception, we are incredibly proud of each individual's progress. The EYFS curriculum develops the holistic child, developing Communication and Language; Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Physical Development; Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding the World; and Expressive Arts and Design. Through this, we have seen each child shine through as they develop their interests and drive their learning forward within the classroom environment, outdoors and at home. 

 

We have recently completed our end of Early Years observations including reading, writing and Mathematics and the progress is excellent. As the children prepare for Year 1 and moving towards the National Curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum, the children are spending a weekly session in Year 1 classes for a story time and discussion. This transition period creates stepping stones between Reception and Year 1, enabling the children to ask questions about the move.

As part of our end of year preparations, the children are preparing their performances for the upcoming Summer Concert, which incorporates songs and poems about moving on to new adventures. Each child should feel proud of how much they have achieved on their learning journey this year.
