The Early Years Curriculum has been revised and will become compulsory from 2021. We are an early adopter of the new Curriculum and are implementing it into our practice this year. Here is a link to the revised Development Matters Curriculum https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/914443/Development_Matters_-_Non-statutory_curriculum_guidance_for_the_early_years_foundation_stage__1_.pdf
Our topics are based upon the world around us at different times of the year and the children’s current interests. We use the children’s ideas and interests to inform our planning and teaching to make learning relevant and purposeful. We also base our learning around quality texts and immerse children in the world of a story to engage them and to promote learning. The curriculum map for this academic year will be uploaded at the end of each term to outline the topics and learning that has taken place.
