EYFS Intent statement
At Woodchurch CE Primary School we believe that all children deserve an education rich in wonder and memorable experiences that allows children’s natural creativity and curiosity to flourish. In Early Years we strive to support children's personal, social and emotional development so that they feel safe, secure and uniquely valued.
The curriculum in Early Years is designed to provide a broad and balanced education that reflects activities and experiences that interest and inspire them. It facilitates them to gain the skills, knowledge and understanding, as they start out on their educational journey, supporting them to progress from their individual starting points and preparing them for the next stage of their education. Weaved through the seven areas of learning, we provide opportunities for learning that excite and engage children, building on their interests and developing their experiences of the world around them. Our learning environments, both inside and outside, are also adapted and refreshed regularly to meet the different and developing needs of the children. We aim to ensure that these areas are always stimulating and exciting.
Our full and rich curriculum ensures that every pupil is given the opportunity to shine. Alongside our curriculum we endeavour to instil Christian Values in all our pupils enabling them to show compassion, hope, forgiveness, thankfulness and love.
Throughout their year in Early years, we hope to provide children with a curriculum where they can explore and develop their learning to begin to help make sense of the world and prepare them well for key stage 1.
‘Children need the freedom to appreciate the infinite resources of their hands, their eyes and their ears, the resources of forms, materials, sounds and colours.’
