Please refer to the current 'Policy' and 'Yearly Overview' attached as well as the class 'Curriculum Overview' documents found under each 'class page' tab for specific topic and learning areas.
History in the foundation stage is taught as an integral part of the topic work covered during the year and the children determine many of the topics taught based on their own interests and play preferences. The statutory framework for the early years foundation stage 2021 Understanding the World learning area will be followed. The curriculum opens a child’s mind up to what they can learn about events, people and places in the past via a play based, self-discovery approach.
