EYFS


Intent:

It is every childโ€™s right to grow up safe, healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and with the skills to achieve economic wellbeing. The overarching aim of the EYFS is to help young children achieve these five outcomes. (Every Child Matters)

We will provide a broad and balanced curriculum that will enable each child to develop personally, socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically, creatively and intellectually to their full potential. Each child is valued as an individual, and teaching and learning is based on the understanding that children develop at different rates.

At Burnham on Crouch Primary School, we aim to:

  • Provide a safe, challenging, stimulating, caring and sharing environment which is sensitive to the needs of the child, including children with additional needs.
  • Provide a broad, balanced, relevant and creative curriculum that will set in place firm foundations for further learning and development in Key Stage 1 and beyond.
  • Use and value what each child can do, assessing their individual needs and helping each child to progress.
  • Enable choice and decision making, fostering independence and self-confidence.
  • Work in partnership with parents and carers and value their contributions ensuring that all children, irrespective of ethnicity, culture, religion, home language, family background, learning difficulties, disabilities, gender or ability, achieve their full potential.
  • Provide opportunities whereby children experience a challenging and enjoyable programme of learning and development.
  • Provide experiences for all children, whatever their needs

The children attended Potions class during the morning where they carried out a range of experiments and then made ice cream and lemonade. Care of Magical Creatures was next , where the children designed,  using a CAD programme, and made bird perches for Hedwig using woodwork skills.
