Learning Through Play is Child's Play

September 2012 saw the introduction of the new EYFS FRAMEWORK and through our planning your children are continually given opportunities to experience aspects of the new framework.

OFSTED suggests that uninterrupted play is the best way for children to learn, with the opportunity to freely access the outdoors - this is what we aim to achieve at Chewton Common Playgroup, as our weekly timetable shows:

Long term plan
Our long term plan is the new framework based on 30-50 months. We offer activities in which your children can have opportunities to experience and achieve the new EYFS statements.

Planning Autumn Term 2019

This half term we will be getting to know the new children and their families and the older children will be establishing new friendships as their peers have gone to school.

This time of year is about children getting to know the setting, becoming comfortable in their surroundings and confident in their new setting.

We will continue to work on a very loose theme with children being encouraged to take the lead and follow their own interests.

Our Theme is
All About Me

We will look at where we live, who we live with, our pets, our favourite foods, our favourite tv programmes etc. This will allow for lots of conversation and interaction.

We will cover all areas of the EYFS through the activities we offer and through play the children will learn personal and social skills, language and communication skills and develop physical skills. We will also offer activities to promote Maths, Understanding the World, literacy and art and design.

We will be organising trips out and arranging for people to come in and share their interests and skills with the children.
