 In Class One we believe that the greatest levels of attainment, enthusiasm and concentration are gained when children are encouraged to follow their own interests and ideas. We do this by thorough questioning and detailed observations, especially at the beginning of a new topic. This gives us a sense of what the children already know and what they are interested in finding out! We underpin their interests with a deep understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile, which details the skills that each child should develop before they move into Year 1. Although there are no set themes that we have to follow, we link these skills or objectives to what fascinates the children and topical things that occur throughout the year. This method of teaching creates excellent results but means that it is impossible (and indeed unhelpful) to plan future weeks in great detail. Often we find that the children lead the learning in unpredictable but exciting directions – and we think that’s brilliant!
