In EYFS, we teach through a combination of play, child led and adult lead learning following the national guidance "Development Matters". The 7 areas of development are:


  • Communication and Language (Speaking, Listening and Understanding)

  • Physical (Self care and Movement)

  • Personal, Social and Emotional (Behaviour and Making relationships)

  • Literacy (Reading and Writing)

  • Mathematics (Shape and Number)

  • Understanding the World (Science, Technology, Religion)

  • Expressive Arts and Design (Art, Music and Dance)


At Somers Heath, we have a different focus topic each half term to inspire, intrigue and excite our children, while giving them the opportunities they need to develop and learn. Have a look at our topics below!
