To ensure a fully comprehensive and cohesive curriculum approach, it is imperative to consider the EYFS Framework and associated objectives (as detailed in the non statutory guidance Development Matters and the Early Learning Goals). The transition between EYFS and KS1/KS2 is detailed in the Whole School Curriculum Maps and Subject Leader Overviews (see The Sonar Curriculum section) as well as the Thematic and Subject-Specific Prior Knowledge documents.

The EYFS Yearly Overview and accompanying Learning Sequences provide a structure of six themes through which the seven EYFS areas of learning can be delivered in an inter-connected and meaningful way: Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding The World, Expressive Arts and Design, Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. Through thematic learning opportunities, children have the opportunity to develop a broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.
