At Banks Lane Infant and Nursery School, we want our EYFS children to learn through an exciting and stimulating curriculum which enables each child to develop from their own starting points but reach their full potential. We use a balance of whole class teaching, learning together through structured play and opportunities for the children to be creative and independent. Outdoor learning provides opportunities for collaborative learning, exploration and problem solving.
There are seven areas of learning:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
By the end of Reception most children are expected to reach the Early Learning Goals for each area and to display positive characteristics of learning as a foundation for learning within the National Curriculum at Key Stage 1.
