3 What is the EYFS? Early Years Foundation Stage – learning and development stages for children from 0-5 years Based on the knowledge that children learn best through playing, exploring, being active, creative and asking questions - EYFS statutory framework used in any early years settings 0-5 Outlines what we need to do to support your child. ‘curriculum’ for R year at school.

When 3 areas are successful it enables Learning & Development to occur. !

4 Baseline 2015 First few weeks of school as part of getting to know children When children are settled A starting point for learning and progress through school Government introduced a new baseline assessment to measure progress in primary schools. This is not different from how we assessed chn on entry previously, just given us a standardised structure for doing so. Collect info by observing chn, not removing chn from learning. For example, one of things I’ll be looking at ‘is child willing to try out new things’? So…. Yes/no If not there, ok, just a starting point so we can plan for individual needs Begin challenging straight away
