Within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), there are 7 areas of learning:

Prime Areas:

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Communication and Language

Physical Development

Specific Areas:



Understanding The world

Expressive Arts and Design


Throughout the day, the children engaged with a range of learning opportunities which are stimulating and exciting! There are opportunities for adult led, adult-initiated and child- led activities. 


Rainbow Learning


'Rainbow Learning' is a key part of our day in Early years, where the children explore their own interests and ideas. During 'Rainbow Learning' We focus on the 'Characteristics of Effective Learning', these are split into three key areas:

- Playing and Exploring

- Active Learning

- Creative and Critical Thinking


We aim for the children to become active learners, who take ownership of their learning through thinking about how they can challenge themselves in their play. The children enjoy coming up with actions to each Characteristic circle as this helps them to remember each one!



We have PE every Wednesday morning and the child will get changed. PE kits include black shorts or jogging bottoms, their house colour top, a black jumper or cardigan and trainers/ plimsolls.
