Early Years

The Early Years refers to children in Reception and Nursery at our academy.

Children within the Early Years learn through a range of play-based opportunities as well as adult led and independent activities. At Harris Primary Academy Peckham Park, we plan a wide range of exciting activities that promote independence, communication, self-confidence, determination, the ability to think critically and opportunities to share their thoughts and ideas. The children have independent access to a stimulating curriculum both inside and out of the classroom on a daily basis.

The Foundation Stage Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provides a structure of learning opportunities through which we develop the different aspects of early education.

We believe our curriculum helps children meet learning opportunities within a happy, secure and interesting environment through practical activity, enquiry and purposeful play, with consolidation through practice, talk and reflection.

We plan activities and lessons carefully to inspire the children's curiosity, understanding and development. All seven main areas of learning are incorporated into the indoor and outdoor provision and planning is cross curricular across all areas. Throughout the EYFS curriculum, we are always incorporating children’s skills and development under the characteristics of effective learning.


The Foundation Stage Curriculum is organised into “prime” and “specific” areas of learning:

 

Prime Areas

The three prime areas of learning form the foundations for all future learning and therefore place a lot of emphasis on ensuring that all children feel, happy, secure and settled into the school environment.

Personal and Social and Emotional Development

  • Making relationships
  • Self-confidence and self-awareness
  • Managing feelings and behaviour

Communication and Language

  • Listening and attention
  • Understanding
  • Speaking

Physical Development

  • Moving and handling
  • Health and self-care

 

Specific Areas

There are four specific areas of learning which supplement the prime areas and allow children to become confident active learners when the prime areas of learning have been supported and applied. Through these areas, we believe children can further develop their knowledge of the world around them and develop an understanding of all future learning that waits them. Here children will continue to become effective learners and develop the dispositions to learning through being curious, resourceful, persistent and courageous.

Phonics and Early Reading

Phonics is taught to all children in daily sessions that are tailored to each child’s ability starting in Reception and continuing throughout Year 1 and Year 2. We follow Ruth Miskin’s ‘Read Write Inc.’ scheme of phonics.  Children are taught in ability groups to enable focused development of their phonics knowledge and application. For more information go to: www.ruthmiskin.com

Children should read at home for ten to fifteen minutes a day.

We encourage all parents to read daily to their child and children are also encouraged to choose from a wide range of age appropriate books from their year group's selection. These texts are high quality picture books for parents to read to their child at home. Children will be able to join in with familiar words, rhymes or patterns and as the year progresses will be able to read more elements of these texts.

At Harris Primary Academy Peckham Park, we believe the holistic development of children is paramount and we take great pride in understanding the uniqueness of each child. We are proud that children in our Early Years setting move to Key Stage 1 as confident, happy and resilient students, who are equipped with the skills and knowledge to progress through their time.
