The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum
In Foundation 1 we follow the 'Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.' This is split in to 7 areas.
The 3 prime areas on which we focus are
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
The other areas are
- Knowledge and Understanding
- Expressive Arts and Design
At the end of the Foundation 1 year children most children will have made very good progress in their development and they are ready to move in to Foundation 2.
Early Adopters 2020-21
This year at Imperial Avenue Infant School we have chosen to be 'Early Adopters' of the new 'Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum'. This will become statutory for all schools in England for the academic year 2021-22. The curriculum is split in to the same 7 areas as previously with a focus on the 3 prime areas of Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal and Social Development. The curriculum we teach will change slightly in all areas. We will keep parents informed about the curriculum over the year through the website, Class Dojo and parent information meetings either online and hopefully face to face when this is safe to do so.
