This year, the staff will be working across the EYFS as a early years unit with Ms Mckenzie and Miss McKaigue. They will be assisted by Ms Bailey, Mrs Bunyan and Mrs Shah.
Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development which forms the EYFS curriculum.
Children should mostly develop in the 3 prime areas first. These are:
Communication and Language;
Physical Development; and
Personal, social and emotional development.
These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:
Understanding the world; and
Expressive arts and design.
These 7 areas are used to plan your child’s learning and activities. The staff teaching and supporting your child will make sure the activities are suited to your child’s unique needs.
We have started to learn the first set of sounds. Children are beginning to read and write short words. You can support their learning at home by encouraging them to read their books with you. If you missed the Read Write meeting and would like some advice, please come and ask Mrs McKenzie
