Early Years Foundation Stage
We pride ourselves on providing a safe, happy, fun environment in which our children can learn. We use a positive teaching style, encouraging children to be polite, listen carefully, share and develop a caring attitude towards others. We work with children primarily on their personal, social and emotional development as once this is in place the others areas of learning will follow. This supports our mission statement and ethos,and runs through the whole school. The caring attitudes of all the pupils, towards the youngest are a particular strength. We are very proud of our school environment, which is based around a strong a friendly, caring, family atmosphere with a strong sense of community.
Here at Brennand's Endowed School we offer pre-school children an opportunity to develop skills they may have already learned at home or in another setting alongside our Reception class. Children are welcome to attend Pre-School for whole school days or can choose to join us for morning or afternoon sessions. At Brennand's we find that children who attend pre-school have excellent personal, social and emotional skills, and that when they start in Reception they are settled, happy, confident children that are ready to learn.
The classroom is a bright, vibrant and happy environment where pupils learn through hands on, practical experiences as well as the more formal table time.
EYFS canopy room
Mrs Milne-Redhead opened our canopy room for us on Friday 15th November 2013. The room is primarily used for Foundation Stage children, but the whole school take advantage of this beautiful addition to the school building.
We are fortunate to have a wonderful outdoor space. We have use of three outdoor areas which the children can access throughout their sessions.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
The principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage are grouped into four themes:-
A Unique Child- every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable and self assured.
Positive Relationships- children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person.
Enabling Environments- the environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children's development and learning
Learning and Development- children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of Learning and Development are equally important and inter-connected.
There are 7 areas of learning and development in the Early Years Foundation Stage are
Communication and Language; Physical Development; Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding the World; and Expressive Arts and Design.
For more information about our Foundation Stage request our Reception Welcome Pack or you could make an appointment to visit our setting.
