On this page you will find lots of information about our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and what happens when your child starts at Redland School.
Our Reception year has two classes – Wrens and Owls. Each class has a full-time teacher and there are three teaching assistants that work across the setting.
The Early Years Foundation Stage is where the children start their learning journey. Children learn within a safe and secure environment. The children learn through a range of child and adult-led learning opportunities in both the classroom and outdoor area where they are immersed in a language rich environment. Learning is achieved through a range of fantastic hands-on activities and learning opportunities that are highly engaging and enjoyable.
We aim to provide exciting learning opportunities that are based around the 7 Prime and Specific areas set out in the Early Years framework. These areas are developed alongside the 3 learning characteristics as set out below.
