Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage from the children and adults of Tehidy Class.
At St Uny Academy, the implementation of our EYFS curriculum ensures that our children can develop as independent, confident and successful learners. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework that sets the standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to 5.
Community is at the heart of our classroom practice; our children have high aspirations and understand the value of making positive contributions to the world around them. Our goal is to ensure that all of our children are happy and engaged.
Through our child-led curriculum, we provide an environment that allows each child to display high levels of concentration, creativity, energy and persistence. The rationale behind this is that high levels of well-being and involvement foster positive development for children and facilitate deeper learning.
We believe that children should be able to lead their learning by initiating activities that are significant to them, derived from their own interests and ideas. Our curriculum is centred around our children; our EYFS team plan and enhance our classroom provision based on their knowledge of the children. In addition to this, and in order to broaden the experiences afforded to our children, our EYFS curriculum is enhanced each half term with a thematic focus. These themed activities are integrated into our daily classroom practice, with the aim of inspiring our children and enriching their daily learning.
Our EYFS curriculum enables our children to continually demonstrate their ability to:
- Play and explore
- Learn actively
- Create and think critically
