We are committed to providing the best possible start to our children’s school life. Providing skills , knowledge and experiences for the children to carry with them throughout their future successes.
In the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) at E-ACT Blackley Academy we want children to be happy, confident, well rounded individuals with a love for learning. We provide our children with a safe and stimulating environment that builds on each individual’s wants, needs and interests.
We believe that children should have the opportunity to learn through play. Learning should be fun, engaging and suitably challenging. Playing and exploring, active learning and creating and thinking critically underpin our curriculum which has seven areas of learning;
Communication and language
Personal and social development
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design
We value the importance of our outdoor environment as a continuation of our indoor provision. We create activities which offer children the opportunity to develop their thinking, problem solving and gross motor skills. Our outdoor is created to extend and embed the learning from group sessions and provide opportunities for explorative and imaginative play. Adults provide high quality interactions, they are role models for the use of language , social interaction and learning.
