At our school, we value the whole child and look to support them in not only their academic progress but their social and emotional, communication and language skills too. Family Time is the core to our approach in the EYFS, giving children a chance to express their thoughts, feelings and opinions in a calm and safe way. Each day in Family Time, children are split into their key worker groups, with their key worker adult. They get to have a snack and reflect on their feelings, what they are going to learn and perhaps discuss current themes within the classroom led by their key person. By children coming together daily, they have the chance to build their confidence and support each other in their learning and experiences.
