Explorers YR

Welcome to our EYFS page. I am Mrs Dobrin and I look forward to seeing you all back to school. 


In Explorers children are actively involved in their learning and follow both adult guided and child initiated investigation, exploring, play and learning. They take ownership and accept challenges, concentrating and developing their own ideas drawing on previous experiences to help them solve problems and reach conclusions.


We believe that strong positive partnership between parents and staff are fundamental to developing your child's independence and a love of learning. In Explorers we have a safe and secure environment where we establish routines and respond to the children's individual needs as all children develop and learn at different rates.


Explorers is a busy, happy place to come and learn.


In EXPLORERS we follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which sets the standards for promoting the learning, development and safety of children.  To plan effectively we need to know the children well, identifying their interests, exploring how they like to learn through observations and interactions. We monitor their progress in each area of learning through our observations, formative and summative assessments throughout the year.


To support our planning we use the 'Dimensions' curriculum.  The Dimensions Curriculum follows the new Development Matters and Early Learning Goals detailed by the Department for Education.

Our first theme this year is 'Happy to be me', which is all about us! We will learn all about our different body parts, our similarities and differences and will learn about each others families. What senses do we have? How do our five senses help us? How are you similar to someone in your family? How are you different? Who is in your family?
