Early Years Foundation Stage
At Bowes, we have a Nursery (based at our New Southgate site) and three Reception classes (two classes at New Southgate and one at Southgate Green).
Our Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is based on the EYFS profile and Development Matters. We incorporate the children’s interests through various themes ensuring that the curriculum combines learning both in and outside of the classroom.
Learning in the EYFS framework is defined into seven areas of learning. Each area of learning is important and the areas overlap.
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
