The EYFS teaching is based on ‘Corner Stones’ which encourages and develops all areas of children’s learning. It enables children to learn through theme based activities with an even mix between adult-led and child initiated learning.

Cornerstones is based on a four stage pedagogy, (Engage) to hook learner in with a memorable experience, (Develop) teach knowledge for depth of understanding, (Innovate) provide imaginative scenarios that provoke creative thinking and (Express) to encourage reflective talk by asking questions.

We have a two year rolling programme, this year our topics are:
