The Early Years is all about your child learning through play. Your child will spend most of their day in school accessing the continuous provision and following their own interests both indoors and outdoors. The areas within the classroom will be set up by adults who have taken into account your child's interests and next steps. The children will access these areas with support and guidance from teaching staff.
During the day, your child will take part in some short adult led activities focused around Communication and Language, Phonics and Maths. Although adult led, these will be fun and engaging sessions, planned with the children's interests and needs in mind. There are ample opportunities throughout the year for outdoor play, as we believe this is vital for children's development.
Once the children are settled in school we will have opportunities for you to join us in the classroom to experience our learning environment. We will also provide parental workshops to inform you of our teaching approaches, allowing for greater collaboration to support your child’s progress.

The document is based around age bands. We would initially be working with age bands 30-50 months and 40-60 months in Reception.
