The Seven Key Areas of EYFS Learning

Our nursery curriculum explores all seven key areas of EYFS learning.

Communication and Language

Giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment, to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves, and to speak and listen in a range of situations.

Understanding the World

Guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.

Physical Development

Providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive, and to develop their co-ordination, control and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and make healthy choices in relation to food.

Encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Giving children access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems etc) to ignite their interest

Mathematics

Providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems, and to describe shapes, spaces and measure.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups, and to have confidence in their own abilities.
