Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at Littledean C of E Primary School, we want our children to be independent, active learners, to learn through play and exploration and think about their work critically, so that next time they know how to improve. The children carry out learning activities both indoors and outdoors, whatever the weather!

 The children experience adult led play, teacher directed tasks and child initiated play. The adults teach the children the skills and the children then transfer those skills to their chosen activities. Through staff observations of the children they can extend the activities to suit each child’s need and stage of development as we believe that each child is unique.

 Each child has their own Learning Journey on Tapestry, which will contain evidence of their learning experiences. Parents are encouraged to share information about their child’s progress, development and achievements.
