Early Years Foundation Stage

Welcome to The Early Years Foundation Stage


At The Round House we welcome children into our Reception Classes in the September after they turn 4.


This is such an important time in your child's school life, where routines are established and relationships are built between home and school. We will always do our best to work closely with you, to ensure that your child has a smooth start to their school careers.


At the Round House the children will be given the opportunities to work independently, in pairs, and in groups.  During their child led learning children will be able to exploring the activities and resources on offer as part of learning through play and exploration. Much of the learning will be practical, allowing the children to develop both their understanding and their fine motor skills.


Our curriculum is divided into seven different areas of learning and these are divided into two further areas- The Prime and The Specific Areas if Learning.


 The Prime Areas of Learning include

  • Communication and Language (Listening and Attention, Understanding and Speaking)
  • Moving and Handling (Physical Development and Health and Self-care)
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development (Making Relationships, Self-confidence and self-awareness and Managing Feelings and Behaviour)


The Specific Areas of learning include

  • Mathematics (Number and Shape, Space and Measure)
  • Literacy (Reading and Writing)
  • Expressive Arts and Design (Exploring media and materials and Imaginative)
  • Understanding the World (People and Communities, The World and Technology)
