In Nursery and Reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. There are seven areas of learning and development that shape this curriculum and are interwoven through everything we do. Please see the curriculum tab for more information.
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Helping children to develop positive relationships, social skills and learn about their feelings and behaviour.
Being active to develop muscle strength, co-ordination and control in large and small movements. Also beginning to understand the importance of physical activity and making healthy eating choices.
Communication and Language Development
Giving children opportunities to explore a communication rich environment where they can build their confidence and skills when expressing themselves. Children also develop the ability to listen and respond appropriately in a range of situations.
Building children’s awareness of sounds before linking them to letters and beginning to read and write. We do this through providing access to a wide range of reading and mark-making materials, both indoors and outdoors, to ignite their interest and through taught Phonics and Literacy sessions.
