In Early Years at Beever Primary our children are happy.~

We have high ambitions for all our children and recognise that children have different starting points. We plan according to children’s stage of development so all can thrive and develop. We aim for our children to be well-rounded individuals who are independent, resilient, persevere within their learning and children who are confident in themselves and with others. Our children are happy and proud, knowing that we celebrate their successes and value their achievements from either home or school, during weekly assemblies, homework boards or ‘Learning Book’ sessions.

They are excited and motivated to learn through rich and stimulating learning experiences. We provide children with awe and wonder to hook children into their learning from the very beginning of their topics.

Our ‘I can’ curriculum is designed as progressive statements for different stages throughout the year, based on the development matters outcomes. Our medium term plans then incorporate those statements so we base our activities around what we aim for the children to learn and achieve throughout that half term. We follow a two year topic cycle filled with wonderful exciting topics that the children thoroughly enjoy. The topics are enquiry based, in line with the rest of the school and so children are becoming inquisitive, skill based learners.

Our partnership with parents means that parents have the opportunity to work closely with our Early Years practitioners to support children’s transition into the setting. We would like parents to feel secure in the knowledge that their child is well cared for and happy at school. Our parents are encouraged and welcomed to be actively involved in their children’s learning in school and are able to share learning experiences through ‘stay and play’ sessions, viewing and contributing to learning journeys through ‘Learning Book’, trips, events and parent workshops.
