Overview of Topics for Early Years Foundation Stage
During the current year Topics have been impacted through the events of Lockdown. Teachers are still planning activities based on the following structure:
In the Early Years Foundation Stage at Brookside Academy, our mission is to provide and enabling environment which promotes the learning and development of every child. Our EYFS curriculum is designed to allow children to develop the knowledge and learning behaviours that they need to succeed on their life journey ahead.
Children’s learning is led through a balance of discrete, adult-led sessions and carefully planned continuous provision where children have the opportunity to investigate and apply their learning using our variety of stimulating indoor and outdoor environments. Through building positive relationships, our aim is to foster the characteristics of effective learning in each child.
It is our aim that children will leave the EYFS as confident, independent and reflective learners.
