EYFS Development Matters 

Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) 
This non-statutory guidance material supports practitioners in implementing the statutory requirements of the EYFS.

‘Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) This non-statutory guidance material supports practitioners in implementing the statutory requirements of the EYFS.’  It is broken down into age bands for learning and development.  We are currently focusing on the 40-60 band and ensuring we are working in the Early Learning Goal section for each area of learning and development.  You will also see the Characteristics of Effective Learning.  These are the skills and learning attitudes which we promote through our curriculum.  It is important that these are still being fostered at home.  The document outlines how the areas of learning and development will often link together in a holistic style of learning.  Please see the Unique Child, Positive Relationships and Enabling Environments sections which underpin the areas of learning and development.

Snack Time, Chinese Style! 

Snack Time, Chinese Style!

This morning, the Reception children all came together for snack time, with a difference! Yesterday, they went to the cookery room to make Chinese stir fry using a soy and Chinese five spice sauce and a sweet chilli sauce. The time had come to try their cooking! First, we had a starter of prawn crackers with two types of sauce; soy and sweet chilli. The children then took a vote on what their favourite was, and why. Then it was time for the main - stir fry vegetable chow mein with the two different flavour sauces. The children really dug in and although some didn't like one type, they really liked the other! Some children didn't like either but still gave it a good go! We then took another vote on which stir fry sauce they preferred. All children sat beautifully and waited patiently for their food.



 


A special visitor 

Discovering about Chinese New Year

Today we were very lucky to have a special visitor come into school. Elaine came in to help us celebrate and learn about Chinese New Year. We started by learning how to say “good morning” in Chinese. Next, Elaine explained about Chinese New Year and the food they eat to celebrate. They eat noodles because they are long and it symbolises a long, long life.

After that, we explored the special, best Chinese clothes that children wear on Chinese New Year. The reason why the clothes are red goes back to ancient traditions. It was believed that there was a scary monster in a village. One day a man painted all the doors red and set off lots of fire crackers. This scared the monster off and it never came back again! At Chinese New Year they have the loud drums and lots of red to remember the ending of bad luck and bringing in the good luck.

On the special festival, children will wish adults Happy New Year. If they are really polite, they will receive a lucky red envelope with money in it! The children listened so carefully to Elaine about the different culture.

To finish, the children had a go at practising how to say Happy New Year in Chinese and they were very lucky to receive a red envelope!

Thank you so much to Elaine for coming in.
