Curriculum

Our nursery curriculum is designed to extend and enhance what children have learned at home and provide a foundation for the further learning which will take place when primary school begins.

 

The Early Years Foundation Stage is guidance for what children should learn before they start school and continuing into the reception year of school.

 

It is divided into 7 areas of learning:

 

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics

 

The delivery of the EYFS is through play, discovery, active learning and first hand experience.  We have introduced 'Planning in the Moment' as our approach to teaching as it enables us to follow children's interests and build upon these. 

Making cheese and onion pies, following the children's interests

Making cheese and onion pies, following the children's interests 1
The children here had been playing in the playdough making pies in the morning, so following their interests Sarah sourced the ingredients to make cheese and onion pies that afternoon. The children had experience of weighing ingredients, using tools, taking turns and following a recipe. Later on they got to eat their delicious pies!
