Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
Our Reception children are offered wonderful learning experiences and are nurtured and encouraged to reach their full potential in all aspects of the curriculum.
EYFS 1 and 2: Together our present EYFS rooms offer a warm, vibrant and enriching experience, crucial in terms of a child's physical, intellectual, emotional, social development and wellbeing. Our Buxlow children love learning.
Parents: We recognise the essential role of our parents in their child’s education. Nowhere is this more important than at the Early Years Foundation Stages. Therefore, we encourage and welcome our parents to work in partnership with us to ensure that your children make a head start in their school based learning.
Every Buxlow child is unique and special
Knowing that every child is unique, has individual needs and abilities, and learns in different ways, our curriculum is tailored to meet individual needs with differentiated learning as key to each child's success. Our children are encouraged to think carefully, to ask questions, to respect both themselves and others and to cooperate happily with others. In this nurturing atmosphere our Reception pupils are prepared and ready for successful entry to Year 1.
Activities vary from day to day giving children as wide a variety of experiences as possible. Everything we do helps your child to learn. It may look like play to an adult, but it has a serious purpose for your child. All activities are derived from the ‘Early Learning Goals’..
The seventeen Early Learning Goals are organised under the following seven headings:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
