EYFS Curriculum

The Robert Fitzroy Academy starts from Reception. Our approach is to ensure children have the best possible foundation for learning by ensuring that there is indoor and outdoor provision of supportive but challenging play opportunities across the three prime and four specific areas of the curriculum:


  • Communication and language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal social and emotional development
  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design


The Reception classes’ indoor and outdoor learning environments stimulate enquiry and develop confidence through a range of carefully planned activities which foster the characteristics of effective early learning:


  • Playing and exploring
  • Active learning
  • Creating and thinking critically


The learning progress and next steps for each child is individually monitored and assessed through observation, learning stories and strong links with parents and other significant adults in a child’s life. Observation evidence, photographs and ‘wow’ moments form an individual learning journey which is shared with parents throughout the reception year.
