Floppy Phonics is the synthetics phonics teaching programme we use to engage children from the outset and enables them to learn to read quickly.

EYFS (Reception)


At Callands, we pride ourselves on planning effectively to meet children’s needs and interests. The EYFS framework states that 'practitioners must consider the individual needs, interests and stage of each child in their care, and must use this information to plan a challenging and enjoyable experience for each child'. To achieve this, we plan all of our learning around children’s interests using a PLOD (Possible Lines of Development) planning sheet. We use our knowledge of the child alongside observations of the child and conversations with parents and carers to discover the children’s unique interests. We then use this information to plan activities to ensure every child is challenged and engaged in their learning. Please see the examples below.
