Curriculum Learning Journeys
Our Learning Journeys record our assessments against the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for each year group and show the next steps for each child. You will be given a personal copy of your child’s Learning Journey at Parents’ Evening.
At St Vincent’s we believe that childhood is a time of play, and through play we discover the excitement of learning, the rewards of achievement, and acquire important life skills. The Early Years setting both inside and outside, with its bright colourful, well planned, busy environment, encourages the children in the development of skills, attitudes and understanding that will help them to live full satisfying lives and become confident, useful, active members of a diverse, constantly changing society. Opportunities for both individual and collaborative learning are vital. We plan a balance of child initiated and adult led learning experiences in order to best meet the needs and interests of the children in our setting. We place great importance on the development of personal, social and emotional skills: high self esteem, a positive attitude and cooperative skills are key to successful learning. It is through this process that children will work towards, achieve and in some cases exceed their Early Learning Goals and address each of the four themes identified in the EYFS; A Unique Child, Positive Relationships, Enabling Environments and Learning and Development.
