Gravenhurst Academy

Early Years & Foundation Stages

Our Early Years Foundation Stage consists of seven areas of learning. Three of these areas are the prime areas of learning and they are:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

And four specific areas of learning:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Our teachers provide an exciting environment where children can engage in both child-initiated activities and teacher-led activities in order to develop their learning in these seven areas. We use the Development Matters Framework to help us plan for and assess these activities.
