Characteristics of effective learning in EYFS are...
Playing and Exploring Children investigate and experience things and 'have a go'.
Active Learning Children concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties and enjoy achievements.
Creating and Thinking Critically Children have and develop their own ideas, make links between ideas and develop strategies for doing things.
Our Topics and Themes
We are a ‘Quality Texts’ school where a wonderful book is selected to be at the heart of our activities and topics. We explore the themes through the use of the quality text. We use approaches such as DEAL (Drama Engagement Active Learning) and Tales Toolkit to engage and enthuse the children.
Activities, based upon our topic and theme, will be planned to address these 7 areas of learning in the EYFS Framework.
