Our Learning

The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) sets the basis for all learning that takes place at The Addingtons Pre-School. Here you can find out how we plan activities to learn and develop pre-school skills through play.
Personal, Social​ & Emotional Development

  • Social skills e.g. turn taking, sharing and making friends

  • Support children to deal with their feelings

  • Helping children to understand the rules and boundaries

Communication & Language

  • Communication e.g. interacting with each other, building relationships with both adults and children and taking turns in conversation

  • Language e.g. linking language to actions in songs and rhyme

  • Communication e.g. interacting with each other, building relationships with both adults and children and taking turns in conversation

Physical Development​ / Expressive Art & Design
  • Movement and space e.g. clapping songs, simon says...

  • Health and body awareness e.g. good hygiene practice and know when they feel the need to go to the toilet , rest, eat or drink etc.

  • Using a wide range of small and large equipment and resources during play, too develop motor skills and hand-eye co-ordination. Using a range of malleable materials to pat, pinch, poke and stroke etc

  • Exploring media and material e.g. Creating and experimenting with blocks, colours and marks

  • Creating music and dance e.g. exploring different sounds of instruments, joining in with dance and ring games and singing

  • Developing imagination e.g. make-believe during role play, using props and resources to support their play. To play alongside other children.

Music & Movement Tuesdays
  • Every Tuesday Pre-School is joined by Lisa Matthewman for a 45 minute session of Music & Movement!

  • This is a great way for children to not only develop their musical and motor skills, but also to develop their social development and language skills, as well as their concentration and confidence.

  • Plus, to fascinate the children, whilst also educating them, Lisa bases the music session curriculum on the world and the environment that the children desire to learn about each day, which Lisa is very aware of as she has been specialising in teaching music to the Early Years since 2003.
