In FS1, the UK EYFS Curriculum guides the learning and teaching process and helps us to establish an optimum learning environment in our classes. We believe that to engage, achieve and make positive contributions students must be healthy, secure and safe. We value all of these needs and understand their contribution to the development of happy students in an enjoyable, encouraging and stimulating atmosphere. The learning environment combines high standards with a broad and rich curriculum. We use a variety of play-based and structured activities striking a fine balance between both teacher-led and student-initiated play. Play underpins all development and learning for young children. Most children play spontaneously and it is through play that they develop intellectually, creatively, physically, socially and emotionally.
