The new Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum came into place in September 2021. As a result, we have introduced some important and significant changes to our Early Years Curriculum at St Barnabas'. Some of these exciting changes have been summarised below:

  • Termly topics will be in the form of Big Questions. 
  • We use ‘Tapestry’, our online learning journal, to share your child’s learning journey using photographs and videos. Each post will be accompanied by a short caption to briefly explain the child’s learning or activity. 
  • Parents and carers will be able to use Tapestry at home to document key learning moments at home, such as learning how to ride a bike or going on an outing.
  • Each term, we will have a set of key texts that will be used as a stimulus for discussions, writing opportunities and cross-curricular learning.
