At Lingdale Primary we use The Early Years Foundation Stage profile handbook and have designed our own curriculum to support us in our work in both Nursery and Reception. The framework sets out the legal welfare requirements that we must follow to keep your child safe and promote their welfare. It also sets out the seven areas of learning and development and the characteristics for effective learning around which we plan our activities to support the development of your child. It also supports us with our assessment and explains the levels that your child should reach by the age of 5. Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through the seven areas of learning and development.

Throughout our 2 Year old and Nursery provision, we place great importance on developing the three prime areas first. These are Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, social and Emotional Development.

As your child grows, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas:
• Literacy
• Mathematics
• Understanding the world; and
• Expressive arts and design

We use these seven areas to plan your child’s learning and activities. We know that children learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking and we plan lots of activities to support this both indoors and outside.

Our EYFS places great importance on developing the children’s personal and social skills to ensure they are happy and confident learners. Communication and language is also at the centre of everything we do to ensure children can talk about their experiences and share their ideas.

We use a thematic approach to engage the children and working in partnership with parents encourage independent, happy learners who thrive in school to reach their full potential and set them on their journey to become life long learners.

Zoo lab visits EYFS

Today the children met some very special visitors. Some with four legs, some with eight and some with none!

The children were very brave and listened well to learn about the different animals and their habitats.

World Book Day 2020

This year the children came dressed as their favourite book characters. We had lots of fun reading in unusual places, retelling stories with our friends, and completing a traditional tales treasure hunt. We even had a visit from a real author and enjoyed making up a story with him – he was very impressed with the children’s imagination. The children were very inspired to make up stories with the props around the classroom afterwards!

Chinese New Year

This week we have been busy learning all about Chinese New Year traditions. We read information books to research, made drums and practised our festival dancing, practised our scissor skills to make Chinese lanterns and tasted some Chinese food. We tried really hard to use the chopsticks!

A visit from the Firefighters… Road Safety Day

We had a visit from some special visitors to teach us how to stay safe on the roads…
