Our Early Years :)
Early Years Quality Mark
New Moston Early Years Foundation Stage has been awarded
the Early Years Quality Mark in 2017 and 2020.
This award demonstrates our setting’s commitment to continually
improving standards of high quality education and care for young children.
The award is renewed every 3-4 years.
Our EYFS vision
All the documents we write, have our children at the heart of them. Our policy details each area of the EYFS provision to ensure consistency across the FS Unit and to allow our children to achieve all they are capable of in a supportive, caring and challenging environment.
The following documents tell you more about our vision:
The EYFS Statutory Framework has changed and is effective from September 2021. The areas of learning remain the same but the content has changed.
To find out more about the new EYFS Statutory Framework, click on the link below.
Here is a easy to follow guide for parents and carers of the new EYFS Statutory Framework and a developmental guide;
At the end of the EYFS in FS2, the children are assessed against the Early Learning Goals. These goals cover all of the areas of the EYFS (more detail can be found in the links above)
Below are two documents that state the ELGs.
Our EYFS setting
We are proud of our setting and spend a lot of time and effort planning the provision for the children. The team work hard to ensure that the Unit is a warm, welcoming, safe and happy place to ensure that the children have fun whilst learning in the play provision.
Below you will find PowerPoints that were shared with parents during the Summer term for transition. They contain lots of information that is useful in ensuring that your child is ready for the EYFS.
All the children's learning takes places using a cross curricular approach. It is good EYFS practice for the children to learn in the specific areas of;
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
through the prime areas of;
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
We plan all independent play provision and adult led learning.
Here is our Long Term Plan
Here are the Medium Term Plans. These are produced to explain the Long Term planning in a little more detail to inform weekly planning
Here are our Knowledge Organisers
These are an extension of our Medium Terms Plans. They include key learning, key questions and key vocabulary for each half term.
Here you will find lots of useful links to support your child's learning at home. If you would like any additional information or support, please do come and see a member of staff or email us.
At our school we use Read Write Inc as our phonics program. You can find lots of information about the programme on this site.
Lots of free blending games are available on this website. Children in Nursery will benefit from the games under the Phase 1 tab and some of the Phase 2 games such as Phonics Pop
Reception children need lots of practice blending letters to read. Pick a Picture and Buried Treasure are firm favourites with our children
Phonics is a reading and spelling tool for teaching the basic relationship between letters and the sounds they make. Linking sounds with letters of the alphabet is called phonics. There may be only 26 letters in the alphabet, but those 26 letters actually make over 40 different individual units of sounds
In addition to learning these sounds there are certain words that children need to be able to read on sight. These are called 'Red Words' in Read Write Inc but are often referred to as 'Tricky Words'
The children love listening to the Tricky Word songs!
In the Early Years Foundation Stage it is important for the children not to just know numbers, its vital they are able to apply that knowledge in different contexts.
Jack loves Math and helps makes learning fun! His catchy songs and moves are a really fun way to learn number facts.
0-20 in 1s
0-100 in 1s
0-100 in 10s
0-100 in 5s
At the end of Reception, our children are expected to know number bonds for 5 and 10. They need to be able to do this without the use of fingers or any equipment.
