The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and school reception classes.
Development Matters in the EYFS
This is the framework that we base our curriculum around and it supports us to assess learning. It have been updated and amended in 2021
(Homework will be sent home on a weekly basis once the children are ready for the extra challenge)
Homework helps to practise and reinforce classroom learning and also gives opportunities to develop key skills. We believe that homework only works if we have the support and enthusiasm of parents and children and should be key to an effective partnership between school and families. Please support your child to complete their homework but do not do it for them.
In Reception children are set weekly challenges in their homework books. Completed homework is rewarded with a Homework Hero sticker. Additional phonics activities are also provided on a weekly basis to reinforce our phonics teaching at home, these are in each child’s home school reading record.
Examples of the children's homework are on display on the boards outside Paddington and Dahl classrooms.
