In EYFS at Greenfield Primary School we teach the 17 aspects of learning and development through the Connected Curriculum by Edison Learning. The curriculum is creative, inclusive and relevant to the children's context and interests. To help us achieve this, we involve the children through the use of 'Feeding Forward Sheets' which record their interests and then introduce the theme with an exciting 'hook for learning'. Whenever possible, we make good use of our local community to enrich learning and provide a real link with the world beyond our school.
Provision in the Early Years Foundation Stage allows for continuous provision both indoor and outdoor and the environment is designed to stimulate and support purposeful child initiated play to maximise learning opportunities. These opportunities are continuously developed and enhanced by the highly skilled staff who assess progress and determine next steps in learning for each individual through observation and discussion. The individual child's next steps are displayed in the classroom for each child to see, next steps sheets target individual needs and the Gaps Analysis allows teachers to see wider gaps which inform future planning. The staff also place emphasis on extending language through prescriptive talk structures.
Finding more information
Parents, other stakeholders and members of the public can find out more information in the following ways:
The first point of contact should be your child's class teacher who will be able to talk you through the topics your child will be covering. If you would like any of the information here explaining or would like more in-depth information they will be able to help you.
If you would like to speak with someone other than your child's teacher, then we have a Curriculum Leader who can be contacted through the school office. They will be able to explain the whole school curriculum in more depth and explain the rationale behind this.
