CHANGES TO THE EARLY YEARS CURRICULUM

space hoppersFrom September 2012 we have seen changes to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.

The changes include:

A significant reduction in the number of early learning goals children are assessed against at age 5 from 69 to 17.

Parents to get a summary of their child’s development alongside the health visitor check at age two, to help identify any early problems or special educational needs.

A new focus on three prime areas which are the foundations for childrens ability to learn and develop healthy; personal, social and emotional development; communication and language and physical development.

Beneath these are the four areas of learning where these skills can be applied to learning: literacy, mathematics, expressive art and design and understanding of the world.

Our observation, assessment and planning systems will change over this term to accommodate the changes and to give both your child and yourselves more opportunity to input into the Learning Journey.

If you have any questions please talk to your key person, they will help all they can.
