At our Early Years (EY) setting we provide a stimulating and nurturing two year programme. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS), and work towards enabling every child to master the Early Learning Goals (ELGs), by the end of Reception 2.
Our teachers and learning assistants are committed to supporting our students to develop their personalities and talents, by responding to each individual child’s capabilities. The children at our setting will be challenged through practical activities that develop their critical thinking skills, encourage them to explore new concepts and build the confidence to share their ideas for solving problems.
In line with the EYFS, we take an integrated approach to delivering curriculum content related to the 7 areas of learning.
We combine free flow with classes that follow a more traditional type of learning model to ensure students have a variation of teaching methods and are getting the best out of their learning. During free flow, each individual child is able to make free choices of what they want to do next. They can choose any of the many learning centers set up in the classroom. The benefit of this part of their day is that the children become independent, critical and creative thinkers. Moving between the different learning centres gives them the opportunity to develop at their own pace, and embrace the skills they are learning for that week.
Drop off – Students may come to school via school van or parent drop-off. They are welcomed by the home room teacher and follow the routine of unpacking their things and greeting their teachers and classmates.
National Anthem – Before starting the day the national anthem is played. The children are encouraged to observe respectfully by standing still to listen.
Morning snack – The children sit together to eat a snack. The school kitchen provides a healthy snack for each child. Alternatively, they may bring their own healthy snack from home.
Lessons – Each morning starts with a Phonics and Math lesson. The children receive approximately 20 minutes direct instruction, followed by activities related to the weekly learning concept.
Circle Time – After Phonics and Math the children have Circle Time. Each week has a different theme related to the children’s Personal, Social and Emotional Development. We may sing songs, share ideas, play games or listen to a themed story.
Afternoon – After Circle Time the children will have two more lessons before lunch. They will follow the structure of 20 minutes direct instruction, followed by activities related to the weekly learning concept. The children have a mix of the following subjects:
Lunch – Lunch is served in the Cafeteria. The students are supported by at least 3 adults per class during lunch time.
After lunch Reception 1 student take a nap before starting their hometime routine. *Reception 2 students have two more lessons before starting their hometime routine.
We will use the learning journal platform Tapestry to log assessments regularly. Parents are provided with a Tapestry account which allows them to follow their child’s progress and keep up to date with the types of assessments they are completing. This enables parents to assist their children effectively at home.
