EYFS – Early Years Foundation Stage

Children Playing

The Early Years Foundation Stage consists of seven areas of learning and development. Each one contains a number of ‘Early Learning Goals’ which set out what most children are expected to achieve by the end of the reception year in school, and broad stages of development which help show children’s progress towards the goals.

Children should develop the three prime areas first:

  • communication and language;
  • physical development;
  • personal, social and emotional development;

These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning.

As children grow, the prime areas will help develop skills in four specific areas:

  • literacy;
  • mathematics;
  • understanding the world;
  • expressive arts and design;

The Kingfisher Schools Federation uses ‘Tapestry’ in Reception to provide an online Journal, recording all the learning and fun of children’s early year’s education and enables us to capture children’s experiences, as well as to monitor development and learning. This unique Journal is shared online with parents, who are able to see special moments and view their child’s progress.

Tapestry covers the EYFS and is designed to simplify and improve recording within these curricula. Information can be filtered and displayed in different ways and assessments and statements can be made for each entry.
