Our EYFS philosophy is ‘building a love of learning that will last a lifetime’. Our EYFS is a carefully planned environment which allows children to explore, practice and refine learning using a core set of resources which are built upon throughout the year.
At Warbstow, we place great value on the development of children as individuals and providing them with the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to prepare them for the challenges in Key Stage One and beyond. Our aim in the EYFS is to build strong foundations rooted in academic success as well as to achieve to their full potential socially and emotionally, so that ultimately our pupils go on to be active citizens of society and happy, curious life-long learners.
Our curriculum is therefore the cultural capital we know our pupils need so that they can gain the knowledge, skills and understanding they require for success. They can only do that if we embed the right habits for learning through the Characteristics of Effective Teaching and Learning – Play and Exploration, Active Learning and Creative and Critical Thinking. This all takes place in the context of a safe and nurturing school environment where each individual child is known, and their learning journey is unique to them.
