Early Years

Gulf British Academy’s Early Years programme for Pre-KG, KG and Reception classes aims to meet the standards set out in England’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum framework. We promote learning through play and activity based teaching.

We recognise that children learn differently and at different rates, so we provide a creative and varied Foundation programme to ensure your child has the opportunity to flourish. This is a very important stage in your child’s education and we strive to foster a love of learning and exploration in order to prepare your child for Key Stage 1.

The early years leaning goals are based on 3 prime areas of development and 4 specific learning areas:

Prime areas of development

Communication and language

Using a variety of situations, emphasis is placed on listening, understanding, attention, and expression through speaking and answering simple questions.

Physical development

Here we focus on developing spatial awareness and manual dexterity as well as instilling the importance of a healthy diet, physical exercise, and basic hygiene.

Personal, social and emotional development

Through activities and speaking in groups, we promote confidence and self-awareness, and encourage children to play co-operatively with empathy and good behaviour.

Specific learning areas

Literacy

Focus is centred on learning simple reading and writing skills, developing phonic knowledge and understanding the basics of what is being read and written.

Mathematics

Learning covers basic counting, sharing, subtraction, addition, shape recognition and measurements using objects and basic mathematical language.

Understanding the world

We encourage pupils to observe and talk about their surroundings and their lives, and how they themselves are similar or different to other children.

Expressive arts and design

Exploration and imagination is the focus here. Children sing, dance and make music. They learn through play as well as paint to express their own ideas.
