After sharing the story of the Gruffalo we followed the recipe and made our own Gruffalo Crumble. We all tasted it and wrote a review to say what we thought of it.

The Early Years Curriculum

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old.

The last year of the Foundation Stage is spent in the Reception class.

There are seven areas of learning and development that must shape teaching and learning in Reception. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. The seven areas are:

• communication and language

• physical development

• personal, social and emotional development

• literacy

• mathematics

• understanding the world

• expressive arts and design.

In planning and guiding children’s activities, the different ways that children learn are reflected on within the teaching.

These are called the characteristics of effective learning and are:

•     Playing and exploring–children investigate and experience things, and “have a go”.

•     Active learning–children concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties, and enjoy achievements.

•     Creating and thinking critically–children have and develop their own ideas, make links between ideas, and develop strategies for doing things.
