St James' SKATs
Our aim is to promote these lifelong learning skills within all the areas of our curriculum.
Whilst the children are in Reception their learning follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS). The EYFS is split into three prime areas which are Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Physical Development. We also have 4 specific areas which are Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
This year we have become 'early adopters' of the EYFS reform which becomes statutory from September 2021.
Within the prime and specific areas each area is divided into aspects. Some of these have changed however the areas have not:
Communication and Language
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts & Design
