Colleagues - can we get a big shout out to all the school office staff out there. They are currently the unsung heroes of our schools right now. Fielding phone calls, monitoring attendance & having to work like a medical call centre. It's a tough job & they do it well. Please RT https://t.co/VFZQng2ckf

Did you know that the most common sound in the English language is the schwa? This is the ‘uh’ sound in words like ‘cinema’ and ‘the.’ Interestingly, ‘schwa’ is a German word but meaning comes from a Hebrew word meaning ‘emptiness’ as if the sound isn’t there at all.

RIP Chadwick Boseman. Thank you for all the amazing films and good works. And thank you for Black Panther, which made the adult me smile and the child in me rejoice because - at last. Rest in eternal peace and power. 😔 https://t.co/aeQh4iaE7J

Sadly this was my wedding ring & bag that was stolen. I’m sure I won’t see them again, but I’d really like it if he didn’t have the opportunity to steal yours. Please have a good look at the picture & if you recognise him call 101 ref 6195/21aug Dx https://t.co/esifysCOTM

Early Years Foundation Stage

Education of even a very small child… does not aim at preparing him for school but for life. Dr Maria Montessori

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the statutory framework that all early years settings must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children are ready for school and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life. The framework can be found here Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) - Schools. We teach this framework through topics that excite the children; we gather their ideas through mind-mapping and plan according to their needs and interests.

Magna Carta offers a curriculum which is broad and balanced and which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society. Our curriculum prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in the 21st century. Our curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that we plan for our pupils. The national curriculum forms one part of the school curriculum. In addition to the national curriculum, we make provision for a daily act of collective worship and teach religious education, personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) and sex and relationships education (SRE) to pupils at every key stage.



THE EARLY YEARS CURRICULUM

The Early Years curriculum comprises seven areas of learning covering each Early Learning Goal (ELG). To reach a Good Level of Development (GLD), pupils must achieve at least expected levels in the prime areas and in literacy and mathematics by the end of the Reception year.

The prime areas of learning:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development

The specific areas of learning:

  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • understanding the world
  • expressive arts and design

Characteristics of effective learning:

  • playing and exploring
  • active learning
  • creating and thinking critically
 


Assessments are based primarily on observation of daily activities and events. Teachers and EYFS co-educators note in particular the learning which a pupil demonstrates spontaneously, independently and consistently in a range of contexts. Accurate assessment takes account of a range of perspectives including those of the pupil, parents and other adults who have significant interactions with the pupil.

For each ELG, teachers and EYFS co-educators judge whether a pupil is meeting the level of development expected at the end of the Reception year (expected), exceeding this level (exceeding), or not yet reaching this level (emerging).
