Evening all,

does anyone know if it is acceptable for year 1 children to follow an eyfs curriculum when they are in a mixed reception/year 1 class?

Do you mean using the EYFS approach in Y1 or using the content?

Children would still be working towards achieving the Foundation Stage outcomes even in Year 1, if they had not met them by the end of reception year.
Not uncommon.
I work in Year 1 class and a few of the children are still working within the EYFS, usually the summer born ones, just takes them a while to 'catch up', planning is done accordingly with EYFS outcomes and those for the National Curriculum on the targets.
