Academic Year 2021-22
The topics in the EYFS at John Hampden Primary School link to our PSHE themes, but also follow the interests of the children. Throughout each term the children take part in child and adult initiated activities linked to their interests. Therefore, the highlighted sections on the curriculum map are subject to change depending on the needs and interest of the cohort each term. The ‘normal’ text (not highlighted) refers to every day skills that will be practised and taught in addition to the themes for each term – these are taken from Development Matters and will assist us in enabling children to reach the expected level at the end of the Reception year. In addition to the map below, the children have access to continuous provision which is carefully planned for both inside and outside. This is planned by staff on a weekly basis and will include some of the ideas outlined below; each area of the curriculum is planned and provided for with a table top activity that can change daily.

Knowledge Organiser Term 5 & 6 – Marvellous Minibeasts
(click on image to view)
Due to the children’s enjoyment of the Marvellous Minibeasts topic and the flexibility of the Early Years Curriculum in following the children’s interests, we are going to continue it for a few weeks after the Easter break before moving on to our ‘Tell Us a Story’ topic which links perfectly to the Arts Week theme. We will update the website with the Term 5 & 6 knowledge organiser in the next few weeks.
