We promote the Characteristics of Effective Learning (Playing and Exploring, Active Learning and Creative and Critical Thinking) by providing all children with a range of rich and meaningful first-hand experiences through our inspiring E3L themes such as: Let’s Pretend, Through the Window, Toy Story and Snap, Crackle and Pop.
Our children in EYFS are given opportunities to engage in “direct” learning experiences both indoors and outdoors and we encourage them to access materials independently and to have pride in their work, make sensible choices about their learning, as well as have high expectations of themselves and others.
We aim to develop children’s artistic and cultural awareness whilst supporting their imagination and creativity in our inviting ‘Creative Room’. We believe it is important that children have regular opportunities to engage with the arts, enabling them to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. These four domains are highly interconnected, and our children access the ‘STEM room’ to further develop their understanding of the world. STEM is a natural part of children’s daily lives as they ask questions, explore their surroundings, and figure out how things work.
