These documents explain what you might expect to see on a standard day in the Early Years Foundation Stage classroom. It provides links to the Development Matters (2012) which is the framework we base our curriculum provision around. The Development Matters helps practitioners to support children’s learning and development, by closely matching what they provide to a child’s current needs. Provision is made through ongoing assessment of children which feeds into their Learning Journey.
Wild Tribe is a version of Forest School that we run at St Stephens. During our Wild Tribe sessions we explore the outside area in a safe and managed way. We build dens, whittle sticks and cook on fires. All of the activities we do are closely supervised and teach our children how to manage risks and stay safe. For more information see the Wild Tribe for Parents information booklet or speak to Miss Moore or Mrs Hobbs.
