Class Overview

As one of the Early Years classes, the children in England Class learn through play. We follow a topic based curriculum based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. This is used in conjunction with B square and P level objectives to ensure differentiation. Children who successfully complete EYFS during KS1 progress onto the National Curriculum.

All learning is delivered through the following strands:

o   Personal Social and Emotional Development

o   Communication and Language

o   Physical Development

o   Literacy

o   Mathematics

o   Understanding of the World

o   Expressive Arts and Design

Engagement, motivation and thinking skills are at the heart of our curriculum. In England Class the children use play as a tool to explore and to be active in their learning along with tasks which will develop their creativity and critical thinking.
