Here at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Primary School, our Early Years Foundation Stage consists of our Reception class, this is for children who are school age (four-five).

Our Approach to Learning in Early Years

The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) is a play-based curriculum. This is something at OLMC we are very passionate about. We love to join in play with children, through play we scaffold development meaning we build upon children’s learning whilst they are engaged and enjoying play. Our approach is Objective Led. This approach means that we have learning objectives for each session, we play with the children and discreetly direct play to these objectives. This means that children learn in a fun, practical way which is meaningful and led by their individual interests.

There are seven areas of the EYFS Curriculum, see these below.

7 Areas of Learning

  • Communication and Language
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design
