EYFS

At Richmond Academy we aim to ensure that all children receive high quality provision which is multi-sensory and engaging, provides first-hand experiences and develops confident, independent learners. The education all children receive at Richmond is broad, balanced and inclusive, it builds on the experiences they bring with them and relates new learning directly to their lives.

At the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage we aim to have developed children who are confident to make positive relationships with their peers, able to communicate their own interests, wants and needs clearly to others, enthusiastic, independent and inquisitive learners who ask questions and want to find out more about the world around them.

We asked children in the Early Years Foundation Stage what they loved about learning, here are some of the things they said:

I love learning my English because we have fun books.  Pirates love underpants is my favourite! - Mariyah

I love big maths because I am a super fast mathematician. - Raheem

I like coming to school because I like reading.  I am good at reading. - Zainab.

I love learning outside in the construction.  We can make anything we want.  We have lots of new toys for learning - Ihsaan.
