Curriculum Intent in EYFS
Our starting point in Early Years is to value and celebrate the rich and diverse experiences of our children and families. We observe children and plan for their next steps using our experience and knowledge of child development and the progression of skills from 3-year-olds to 5-year-olds.
·The Prime areas of learning of are a key focus and the skills that children acquire weave through the whole curriculum and give them basic skills and knowledge to take into their next phase of education. The characteristics of learning underpin all aspects of the curriculum.
As children develop these fundamental skills they acquire knowledge in the specific areas of learning. The learning environment and continuous provision reflect the needs of the children and are carefully planned to develop specific skills. Early Years practitioners ‘plan in the moment’ to consolidate, extend and link the children’s knowledge.
