Welcome to the Blackbirds Class
Our class combines all children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (reception and pre-school children).
Our teachers are: Mrs Fawcett-Smith, Mrs Harrison and Mrs Spencer
Children in our pre-school and reception class follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework. This lays a secure foundation for future learning that is planned around the individual needs and interests of the child. They learn by playing, exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outdoors. There is a mixture of child initiated and teacher led learning opportunities.
Children are taught the social skills of sharing and caring, following instructions and are encouraged to develop their speaking and listening skills.
There are three Prime Areas of learning and development:
- Communications and Language
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
These help to develop skills in four specific areas:
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
