EYFS (Reception)

EYFS Curriculum Spring 2023

Long Term Plan

The EYFS Curriculum 


The Early Years Foundation Stage supports the development of children from birth to age five. The EYFS curriculum is made up of 7 areas which come under the headings of prime and specific. 


Prime areas:

Communication and Language 

Physical Development 

Personal, Social and Emotional Development 


Specific areas:



Understanding the World 

Expressive Arts and Design 


At Ickworth Park Primary School we use Development Matters to inform our long and medium term planning. We then use these development signposts to plan exciting learning opportunities through play and meaningful experiences. 


A useful parents' guide for the Early Years curriculum guidance and support for learning can be found here
