The Early Years Curriculum

 

In the EYFS at Highlands we follow the recently updated 'Development Matters' curriculum guidance, which supports the 'Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage'.

Our curriculum is broken down into three 'prime' and four 'specific' areas of learning, and also takes into account the 'characteristics of effective learning'. We carefully plan whole class activities, group work and resource provision based around these areas to support the progress of all children. 

 

  • Prime areas
    • Communication and Language
    • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
    • Physical Development

 

  • Specific areas
    • Literacy
    • Maths
    • Understanding the World
    • Expressive Arts and Design

 

During their time in our EYFS children are supported to work towards the 'Early Learning Goals' (ELGs), which are the levels of development they should be expected to have attained by the end of Reception.
