In Class R we focus on the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework to help children achieve their Early Learning Goals. These are split across 7 areas:

- Communication and Language
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Literacy
- Mathematics
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Art and Design

We do this through a mixture of teaching inputs and the children having the opportunity to explore new ideas through play and - experiences both inside and out of the classroom.
