Tranmoor Primary School has developed an ambitious knowledge rich curriculum, which follows the 2021 statutory framework of the EYFS. The framework includes seven areas of learning and development.
The prime areas of learning are:
Communication and language
Personal, social and emotional development.
The specific areas of learning are:
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design.
All areas of learning are evident in the preparation and delivery of our curriculum in order to ensure the holistic development of our children. In planning for and guiding children’s activities, we use the characteristics of effective teaching and learning, to reflect on the different ways that children learn and use this information to influence our practice.
The three characteristics of effective teaching and learning are:
Playing and exploring - children investigating, experiencing new things and being willing to ‘have a go’;
Active learning - children concentrating and persevering if they encounter difficulties and enjoy celebrating their achievements; and
Creating and thinking critically - children developing their own ideas, making links between ideas and developing strategies to accomplish a challenge.
