- Time to speak to parents at handover times each day
- Termly parent consultations
- eyLog online Learning Journeys

Learning and Development
Our EYFS children are offered a broad curriculum which includes seven areas of learning and development. These are:
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Personal Social and Emotional Development
- Mathematical Development
- Understanding the World
- Creative Development
The Characteristics of Efective Learning
Playing and Exploring: Interest...
Developing interests and fascinations, making sense of their world through play and 'having a go!'
Active Learning: Motivation...
Keep on trying, pursuing personal goals and being proud of successes
Creating and Thinking Critically: Thinking...
Having own ideas, making links, problem solving, reasoning and many more thinking skills
These are essential learning behaviours that help children develop a love of learning and enable them to become effective learners. These characteristics begin to develop at home with families from birth and they continue to develop though school years and adult life. Encouragement and support from adults enables our children to become resilient, capable learners. Children who become confident to pursue their aspirations and eventually fulfill their dreams!
