Welcome to Hamilton and Shireen Class
I hope that you enjoy finding out what we are doing in our classes. This will be an area that will celebrate our learning and keep you up to date with the things that we are learning about.
Early Years Curriculum
The children develop through playing and exploring active learning and creating and thinking critically. There are 7 areas of learning which are divided into the:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development,
- Communication and Language and
- Physical Development
- Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design
The prime areas are fundamental throughout the EYFS and the specific areas include the skills and knowledge which provide important contexts for learning and they develop more fully towards the end of the early years. The children carry out lots of practical experiences through which they are encouraged to explore and experiment.
The children use both the indoor and outdoor classroom during teacher-directed and child-initiated times. We have a particular love for outdoor learning and come rain or shine, we explore and play outside in our outdoor environment.

Whilst using the EYFS statutory framework, we also use ‘Development Matters’ to guide our learning. Our EYFS Curriculum goals are what we would like the children to aspire to become and achieve by the end of their time with us. We provide a thorough and vast range of experiences where we actively encourage child-initiated, purposeful learning to help inspire this.
