A little about EYFS...
The Early Years Foundation Stage is the stage of education for children from birth to the end of reception year. The curriculum is based on the recognition that children learn best through play and active learning.
The EYFS Framework sets out the expected levels that your child should reach at age 5, usually the end of the reception year; these expectations are called the “Early Learning Goals (ELGs)”
They address how a child learns and include:
Characteristics of effective learning
Playing & exploring – Engagement
Finding out and exploring
Playing with what they know
Being willing to ‘have a go’
Active learning – Motivation
Being involved & concentrating
Enjoying achieving what they set out to do
Creating and thinking critically – Thinking
Having their own ideas
Choosing ways to do things
