LEARNING

Early Years Foundations Stage

 

To help you understand about the curriculum we have listed the four principles of the EYFS and also the Seven areas of learning.

At Angels we have specialist qualified teachers and a specific learning board who structure the best way to apply the learning in a fun and safe method. We want you to know that while your child is at Angels they are not only having fun but are getting the best from the delivery of the EYFS.

The Four Principles

This is based on the principle that every child is a competent learner and can be resilient, capable and confident.

A Unique Child 

This is based on the principle that every child is a competent learner and can be resilient, capable and confident.

Enabling Environments 

This recognises the key role a child’s environment plays in supporting and extending their development and learning.

Positive Relationships

This highlights the importance of children having loving and secure relationships with parents and carers, in order to become strong and independent.

Learning & Development 

This is based on the knowledge that children develop and learn in different ways and that all areas of learning are interconnected and equally important.

The Seven Areas of Learning

These areas combine together to make up the skills, knowledge and experiences that babies and children acquire as they grow, learn and develop. The prime areas are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Communication and Language. These are fundamental because they work together to support development in the other areas. The developmental statements in these areas help practitioners to identify and plan for the children’s individual interests and abilities.

1. Personal, Social and Emotional Development

This area looks at supporting children to develop a sense of themselves, social skills and respect for others and a positive disposition to learn. Children’s emotional well-being also needs to be supported in order to help them understand and manage their feelings and behaviour.

2. Physical Development

This area looks at supporting children in using their senses and bodies to explore the world around them and make connections between new and existing knowledge. They should have the chance to be active and interact with things to improve their skills of coordination, control, manipulation and movement. Children also need to develop an understanding of healthy living practices.

3. Communication and Language

This area looks at supporting children’s developing competence in listening and understanding as well as speaking and communicating. Children should be given opportunities to build these skills and gain confidence to use them in a range of situations.

4. Literacy

This area focuses on learning the skills needed for reading and writing.

5. Mathematics

This area looks at supporting children to develop their understanding of numbers, calculating, shapes, space and measures.

6. Understanding the World

This area looks at supporting children in developing the knowledge, skills and understanding to help them make sense of their world. They should be able to explore creatures, people, plants and objects and undertake practical ‘experiments.’

7. Expressive Arts and Design

This area looks at supporting children in developing their creativity by providing a range of opportunities, materials and media in which to express themselves and use their imaginations. The children should be encouraged to explore and share their thoughts, feelings and ideas.
