Children in Nursery and Reception at Moston Fields are taught using the The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). This sets the standards for learning, development and care for children from birth until the end of the Reception year. It aims to develop each child to their full potential by offering a ‘principled, play based approach to learning and development’. Young children learn best through play and Early Years Practitioners will be able to provide your child with appropriate play and learning experiences for their stage of development and help them develop new skills. The activities that are provided for young children will underpin the skills they need to work towards the Early Learning Goals at the end of their Reception year at the school. The EYFS curriculum enables practitioners to recognise your child’s strengths and areas where they need more support to develop new skills.
At Moston Fields Primary, Nursery and Reception pupils will be accessing a rich language based curriculum all based around specific high quality key texts that have been chosen to give children a range of learning opportunities across the seven key areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. These seven areas of learning are:
Communication and Language
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Understanding of the world
All areas of learning and development are important and interconnected and many activities will cover many of the areas. Each area is divided into stages of development and practitioners are able to identify resources and learning opportunities for individual children dependent on their developmental needs.
Our key curriculum objectives will be based around these key texts. Click on the Nursery and Reception pages to see what they are
Our children are now well into their Talk for Writing work. We have been soooooo impressed at how they can remember the stories we have learnt so far. Ask your child to tell you the story we are learning at the moment 'Where the Wild Things are', by Maurice Sendak. They can retell the whole story without the book and have been using story spoons, small world equipment and lots of other resources to create their own imaginary 'wild worlds'!
Have a look at some of the photos of what we have been up to!
