Children in Robin’s class follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage), children follow the EYFS framework from birth to 5 years old and all professionals (nurseries, child-minders, teachers etc.) use this framework to plan for children’s next steps and support their holistic development.
The EYFS was recently revised, September 2021. The changes to the framework aim to improve outcomes for children, particularly children who are considered disadvantaged, in language and literacy, ensure that Early Learning Goals are clearer, precise and assessed consistently across settings as well as reducing paperwork for adults to allow them to spend more time with children fostering quality interactions.
The EYFS is a crucial stage for children as it helps prepare them for more formal teaching and lifelong learning. Children’s early years’ experience should be a happy, active, exciting, fun and safe time which enables every individual child to achieve their full potential. Here at Drayton Community Primary School we aim to ensure that all children learn by ‘doing’ and leave Robin’s class with a love of learning and feeling safe and excited by the opportunities that learning offers.
General information about Robin’s class
- Please ensure that all children have the following in school each day- a named water bottle, suitable clothing as the children have free flow access to both the indoor and outdoor learning environment. There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing for the weather!
- Children will need a named PE kit in school; we will let you know when we need this to be in school. We will send it home
