What will my child be learning in Nursery and Reception?

Avanti Fields School is a safe, secure and friendly learning environment, which aims to meet the needs of all its pupils. Encouraging and challenging children to become confident learners.

The phase of education for children aged Birth to 5 years is known as the Early Years Foundation Stage. At Avanti Fields children embark on this journey with the school as early as 3 in the Nursery and then moving on to Reception at the age of 4 and 5 years.

Avanti Fields EYFS offers every child a broad and balanced curriculum which supports children to develop in all domains of learning. Children will learn through play-based experiences as well as adult focussed tasks. They will get opportunities to explore their learning in different contexts and will learn through both indoor and outdoor environments to explore media and scales. The curriculum will be taught through exciting topics and books to develop that love and curiosity for learning.

Our curriculum for EYFS is based on the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage 2021. We use Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage; non-statutory guidance material which supports the implementation of the statutory requirements of the EYFS in both our Nursery and Reception classes. At the end of the Reception year, each child will be assessed against the 17 Early Learning Goals (ELGs), each one linked to one of the seven areas of learning highlighted in the EYFS curriculum below.

Along with the above, all children will participate in regular Yoga, Sanskrit and PRE lessons to support with the Avanti way to education ensuring all children grow into well- rounded human beings.
