Early Years Outcomes 


From September 2021 there was a new framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. As quoted from the guidance 'It sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.' At Glen Hills we will plan our EYFS curriculum alongside the interests of the pupils using non-statutory guidance of 'Birth to Five Matters' and 'Development Matters Guidance' to provide our learners with the knowledge and understanding they will need for Key Stage 1 and the for the rest of their schooling.

Early Number Sense



The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum 


Phonics is a key area which we focus on in the the EYFS and early number facts


Our expectations of parental / school links…

We fully appreciate the importance of building home/school links at Glen Hills. 

Please go to our Curriculum Links page for further information for parental support sites.

Reading with your child is probably the most vital aspect of ensuring children get a love of books! Ideally, a little bit of reading together should be done every day with specific questioning of the text they have read to assist with comprehension and secured understanding.  Please encourage your child to take part in the Reading Miles and support them by reading with them regularly.


Phonics – keep going through those sounds – on the website, you will find phonics information for parents.

Maths - number facts will be given out for homework, as well as reinforcement of techniques learnt in school.  Working on numbers to 10. Counting on/back in ones and twos, playing ‘shops’, shape hunting around the house- the possibilities are endless!
