Early Years

Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage at Abbey Primary School

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is a stage of development from birth to the end of a child's first (Reception) year in school.

The EYFS curriculum consists of 7 areas of learning:
3 Prime Areas;
• Personal, Social and Emotional Development
• Physical Development
• Communication and Language


4 Specific Areas;
• Literacy
• Mathematics
• Understanding the World
• Expressive Arts and Design

Within the EYFS your child will embark upon a variety of learning opportunities through adult led activities and child initiated time. The latter ensures the children are supported in their interests and continue to be appropriately challenged.

In the Early Years children develop more rapidly than at any other stage in their lives. Your child's progress and achievements are recorded in a Learning Journal that you can access at any time.

Our new outdoor provision has excited the children and staff to engage more in outdoors activities, we plan to use outdoors all of the time to help the children learn and offer new and exciting experiences! This term our topic is "Celebrations!" we will be learning about different festivals and celebrations!
