Each project allows us to explore learning in all seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework:

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Communication and Language

Physical Development



Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design

Each week we will be reading a different story and learning new vocabulary.
