EYFS at Trinity Primary School.


Areas of Learning and Development

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage which breaks the curriculum into 7 areas of learning. Each area of learning is important and the areas overlap. Most of our activities include learning from at least two areas.


  1. Personal and Social Development

We support children in developing confidence and independence. We encourage them to begin to form positive relationships and respect for each other. Children learn about appropriate behaviour in groups, and how to manage their feelings.


  1. Communication and Language Development

We provide a language rich environment, encouraging the children to speak and listen in a variety of situations. We provide extra support for those children who need to build confidence or develop their speaking skills.



  1. Physical Development

We give children opportunities to be active and to develop their co-ordination, control and movement. We also teach children about the importance of good hygiene habits, fresh air and healthy food choices.





  1. Literacy

Children are given access to a wide range of books and stories to ignite their interest. They are encouraged to link sounds and letters, and early reading and writing is developed.





Children are provided with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems and to describe shapes, spaces and measures.



6.Understanding the World

We support children’s understanding of the world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about places, people, technology and the environment.







7.Expressive Art and Design

Children explore a wide range of media and materials. We encourage them to share their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role play and design technology.



The children in our Foundation Stage take part in all the school events which make our school a special place.
