Parent EYFS Information

Parent EYFS Information

Our EYFS most of the activities children participate in revolve around free choice from our continuous provision. These activities are available to the children every day and the Reception staff enhance them with resources to direct the learning of the children. We also believe that the outdoor classroom should mirror the indoor classroom and that all children should have the free choice to access both in all weathers. This is an area our children thrive in, they love learning their mathematics and phonics as well as other areas of our curriculum on a larger scale outdoors. ​

We believe effective learning in the Early Years is the result of a balance between:

- adult-led learning: this is led and managed by the adult and is typically planned to meet the specific learning needs of the child(ren)

- adult-guided learning: this is where adults might support a child by guiding them (for example, by questioning and prompting, or by providing specific resources in an area of the classroom) and the child(ren) can independently practice​ or explore

- child-initiated learning: this is when the child chooses where to go and what to do in the learning environment – it might look like play, but a lot of incidental learning can happen

The below guide, published 4Children, is a great resource for you as a parent/carer to find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their first five years, in relation to the EYFS
