Foundation Stage (EYFS)
At Riverside Academy we have updated our teaching to be in line with the Statutory Framework for the EYFS, and we follow the programmes of study in the Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage document.
From the earliest years in the school, the children work and play in a text rich environment. Role play areas in foundation stage encourage drama and imaginary games which promote children's knowledge and use of ambitious vocabulary. Hot seating, debates and role plays are just some of the fun and interactive approaches we use to engage children in their lessons.
