What we’ve been up to…
In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), children learn best when they experience learning first hand, through meaningful interactions with others, through physical activity or play.
Teaching in the Nursery is organised through a range of approaches and provides a balance of child initiated and adult led activities:
- Free flow activities both inside and out for the children to access along with permanent learning areas where children are able to access resources independently.
- During free flow time there are opportunities for adults to work alongside children as they develop their own interests in particular areas of the curriculum.
- Planned focus activities where adults work with a small group of children at a time. Adults will differentiate the activity to meet the needs of every child participating.
- Whole class carpet sessions which run for short periods of time such as book of the week, Maths, phonics, songs and rhymes, sharing work and circle time.
