EYFS

Our Early Years Ethos
 
From the moment your child arrives at our school, they become part of our school family where we learn together and care for each other. Our staff are as committed to the welfare of the children as we are to academic achievement.
 
We create a relaxed and happy environment that is caring and supportive because we know that this kind of atmosphere makes children feel safe and helps them to develop confidence, self-esteem and respect for others whilst becoming more confident learners.
 

Our Curriculum

 

Nursery and Reception are part of The Early Years Foundation Stage. We follow a document called the EYFS Framework which sets out the learning and development stages for children as they grow from birth to five years. For children in early years education, the EYFS outlines what staff will do to support your child. 

The EYFS asserts that children learn and develop through playing, exploring, being active, creative and being asked questions to help their thinking.

 

At Wallsend Jubilee we provide a purposeful curriculum which is broad and balanced, providing relevant learning opportunities through first hand experiences that both challenge and motivate children. We offer focussed adult led activities as well as activities initiated by the child or based upon their interests or fascinations. The experiences that we offer are designed to foster confident and independent learners who are able to investigate, communicate and solve problems in order to prepare them for their journey through life. 

 

During play we will be working alongside your child, working together to contribute ideas and coming to conclusions together. We enable children to learn to be more curious and find their own solutions, while we learn about each child’s understanding and knowledge. This sustained, shared thinking allows us to meet the needs of all children and move learning forward through challenging their thinking.

 

We will keep you regularly updated with your child's progress throughout the year.
