EYFS

At Woodford Valley we believe that children learn best and thrive in a play based environment.  We celebrate how children are all unique and we work hard to ensure that children can follow their own interests in an enabling environment that supports them to make progress and imbed new skills.  This means that children are engaged and motivated.  We use a mix of adult led, adult directed and child led  activities which are facilitated by our continuous provision.  Our provision offers children an enabling environment allowing them to explore their interests and new experiences, whilst challenging their learning.  It allows children to become independent in making choices, supporting children in becoming active learners and enabling them to imbed new skills, enhancements and provocations are regularly added to complement children’s interests, expand their learning or reflect a Topic.  We support children’s learning and development across all seven areas of the Early Years Curriculum whilst celebrating the importance of the Characteristics of Effective Learning.

Planning

We have a new Topic for each full term (see below), the Topic Web acts as a general guide, although the Topic remains the same the objectives  and activities may change depending on the skill development and interests of the children at the time.  When we start a new Topic we begin with the children’s understanding as a starting point and develop new knowledge and skills from there using the non-statutory guides Development Matters and Birth to Five Matters, our provision reflects the children’s interests and skill development that we have identified through observations and assessment.  Here are examples of our Topic webs throughout the year;

Focuses on one specific area of need, differentiated into levels with next steps, suggested activities or areas of provision that could be enhanced, one or more adult will use to observe, enhance or develop a skill.  It will also include an adult led input.  We introduce a new focus for literacy and maths each week but sometimes they will continue for more than a week depending on children’s progress.
