Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum
At Abingdon Primary School we follow the ‘The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage’ (2021), which your child will have been following to support their development whilst they attended Nursery. Please see files below for our 'Early Years Policy 2022'.
Our curriculum is play based and our teachers carefully plan learning opportunities around the children's play with a balance of child-initiated learning and teacher led. Throughout the year, we ensure we plan purposeful learning opportunities around various celebrations and things that are happening in the world e.g. Autumn Changes, Christmas, Diwali etc. We try and create real life experiences and ensure this is embedded in our learning environment.
At Abingdon we consider play as an essential skill for children’s development, building their confidence as they learn to explore, to think about problems, and relate to others. Children learn by leading their own play, and by taking part in play which is guided by adults.
There are seven areas of learning and development within the curriculum.
All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected.
Please find our 'EYFS Long Term Plan' attached below. This document details the learning that takes place throughout Reception, and has been made in conjunction with Development Matters 2021. Please note that the topics and themes identified in our 'EYFS Long Term Plan' may change, depending on the children's interests and fascinations. This allows us to personalise their learning experience by creating opportunities for high engagement.
