EYFS curriculum overview

In the Early Years Foundation Stage we strive to offer each child meaningful experiences that will enhance their development and allow them to become confident learners.

We adopt a child-centred ethos, particularly through our use of a ‘Planning in the Moment’ approach.  In practice, this means that learning themes evolve as we observe and note children’s interests; for instance several children taking part in a specific theme in their role-play or children re-visiting a particular concept are examples of starting points that may be used by practitioners.

We respond to these interests there and then, (literally in the moment) when appropriate and possible, but they may turn into longer term themes that draw more children in.  We also use traditional tales or other quality children’s literature to create themes that encompass all areas of learning.

In FS2, an area of interest often emerges through the current Focus child/children. When a learning theme has been identified a knowledge harvest is sometimes used to establish what the children already know, understand or can do; it can also reveal misconceptions.  Children then have the opportunity to voice their ideas for possible lines of development.
