Reception and Nursery (EYFS)

EYFS Long Term Planning

Here at Holywell we place children’s interest and ideas at the forefront of learning. Therefore our planning and enhanced provision is adapted accordingly. Themes may last for a few days or a few weeks. Staff within EYFS observe and facilitate play to stimulate interactions and further develop learning. This also enables them to plan for individuals/ whole class next steps. In Nursery and Reception we also have a set of 10 core books which we share and use to enhance the children’s learning across the year. Below are some possible drivers in learning which may be used as a hook. However, not all of these drivers will be covered as our children have so many wonderful ideas!
