What do you think of the EYFS curriculum

Discussion in 'Primary' started by flower16, Jun 20, 2011.

  1. Hi Im a foundation stage specialist just wanted to get your views on what you think of the EYFS curriculum? I personally think its great as it allows teachers some flexibility, focus on child intitated play and allows more control over the important aspects for the children. Not to mention the Tickell review which had slimmed down the early learning goals.

  3. Hi, I agree with you in that it can allow flexibility. I also think it is good in that it gives all areas of development the same status- for example personal and social development is given equal emphasis as language/literacy development...

    However, i do think that sometimes the EYFS is misused as simply a checklist by some teachers, rather than being used as a framework by which teachers can identify next steps in learning and development. I am an Early Childhood Studies student so have been working in placements in early years settings and I've seen some very good use of the EYFS but also some poor ways of implementing it.

    You're obviously have a lot more experience than me, what do you think?
