Oak Field School

3 - 7 Phase

Learning in the 3 - 7 Phase encourages our pupils to become confident and curious learners with a focus on developing their learning skills.  We promote the development of independence skills by creating an environment which is responsive to the pupils' needs and which supports the positive relationships through which our pupils can thrive.  Our learning is predominantly in the prime areas of the curriculum: communication & language, personal, social and emotional development, and physical development.  The specific areas of the curriculum provide enhancements and opportunities for experiential learning that is so valuable to our pupils' awareness of the world around them.

In our 3 - 7 years phase, pupils have access to 10 continuous provision learning areas. Each of these areas is linked to the EYFS curriculum and has been carefully considered to ensure a breadth of delivery.   Some areas include; messy mark making, reading corner, role play corner and a discovery zone.  Pupils have opportunities for learning in all these areas throughout the week.  Our continuous provision plans highlight key learning opportunities in each continuous provision area, resources and organisation.  Although the core resources remain the same throughout the year, each term topic enhancements are changed and link directly to our half termly book topic.  In addition to the continuous provision plans, pupils also access a focused learning activity linked to the book topic and curriculum map.
