Intent

To provide an exploratory, creative and play based curriculum that develops a love of learning and enables young children to become independent learners.

Aims 

At Broomwood Primary School we follow the statutory framework for the early years foundation stage. This framework specifies the prime and specific areas for learning which are:

 

Prime areas of learning:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Physical development
  • Communication and language

Specific areas of learning:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world
  • Expressive arts and design

 

The early years curriculum is underpinned by four themes:

  • A unique child. Every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. 
  • Positive relationships. Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
  • Enabling environments. Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and carers.
  • Learning and development. Children develop and learn in different ways. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.

 

At the heart of the early years foundation stage curriculum is the characteristics of effective learning. These focus on how children learn and enable us to ensure we provide opportunities to develop these essential skills for learning in young children.  

The characteristics of effective learning are:

  • playing and exploring - children investigate and try new things out.
  • active learning - children concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties.
  • creating and thinking critically - children develop their own ideas and make links.
