EYFS 2021 


A new EYFS curriculum is in place from September 2021.  This covers children in Nursery and Reception.  The framework will be adopted along with the new Reception baseline.  This baseline was taken in September 2021.  Lees Primary adopt the 'New Curriculum and uses Development Matters' document as the main planning tool.


Phonics Scheme - currently we base our learning upon Letters and Sounds. 
Lees are evaluating accredited Phonics schemes.  We have now decided to use Little Wandle Letters and Sounds, Systematic Synthetic Phonics (SSP) and will be ensuring fidelity to Little Wandle SSP. 
Reception Year follow the new EYFS Curriculum
Nursery Year follow the new EYFS Curriculum


Below is a main summary of the changes and our Curriculum intent for 2021. Plus the Development Matters is a summary to show the overall Curriculum for all children.
