York Class - Early Years Foundation Stage
Class Teacher: Miss Sandra Sheldrake
Teaching Assistants: Ms Sam Branch, Mr Joby Gifford Mrs Laura Foster
Welcome to York Class!
Play underpins the delivery of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Through play, our children explore and develop learning experiences which help them make sense of the world around them. They practise and develop ideas, and learn how to control themselves and understand the need for rules. The children are given opportunities to explore a wide range of activities and develop their skills and knowledge within a safe and supported environment. They are encouraged to be active learners and to develop their own ideas, make links in their learning and to be proud of their achievements, both big and small. The children are involved in group and individual play, some initiated by adults and some by the children themselves. Children are able to take risks and make mistakes, and learn from them.
