Reading is extremely important in the Early Years. We encourage parents to read a story a day with their child, this can be done at bedtime or to encourage some quiet time at home.

Early Years Curriculum at Heathfield Primary School
At Heathfield, our curriculum lays out the way we teach our children to achieve our mission statement;
Learning together, learning for life.
The curriculum consists of all the planned activities and routines that we organise in order to promote learning, confidence and self-esteem. We ensure there is a balance of adult-led and child-initiated activities to ensure children have time to explore their own ideas. It includes not only the formal requirements of the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of the children.
The EYFS curriculum is coherently planned based on children’s needs, interests and carefully considered outcomes. This is derived from Quality texts and experiences of the wider world. At Heathfield, we recognise the importance of providing children with high quality texts as this is an essential way to build a wide and rich vocabulary and supports long term memory.
