Nursery Curriculum

Early Years Foundation Stage

Our dedicated and experienced Nursery Crew strive to create a happy, safe and caring environment in which the young mind will flourish under our specialist guidance. We aim to encourage a love for learning from an early age by offering a broad, balanced and stimulating curriculum through which our pupils enjoy a range of rich learning experiences that are not only fun but challenging and engaging for all. We carefully select local providers to enhance our provision throughout the year to ensure our Little Learners are provided with broad, balanced and exciting learning experiences. These include Forest School with Play Wild, Talking Tots and physical activities such as Stretch and Grow, football coaching and gymnastics.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is at the heart of everything we do. The EYFS framework has a flexible structure and supports children’s individual developmental learning. The framework builds on all aspects of children’s development.

There are four themes that underpin the guidance:

  • A Unique Child
  • Positive Relationships
  • Enabling Environments
  • Learning and Development

There are three characteristics of effective learning:

  • Playing and Exploring (engagement)
  • Active Learning (motivation)
  • Creating and Thinking Critically (thinking)

These characteristics support children’s learning across all areas of their development:

Personal, Social and Emotional Development:

  • Making Relationships
  • Self-confidence & self-awareness
  • Managing feelings and behaviour

Communication and Language:

  • Listening and attention
  • Understanding
  • Speaking

Physical Development:

  • Moving and handling
  • Health and self-care

Literacy:

  • Reading
  • Writing

Mathematics:

  • Numbers
  • Shape, space and measure

Understanding the world:

  • People and communities
  • The world
  • Technology

Expressive Arts and Design:

  • Exploring and using media and materials
  • Being imaginative

We welcome our families to be part of our childrens learning experiences by adding to their individual online Tapestry  accounts and offering seasonal family learning together opportunities such as gardening, Yoga and reading sessions with the Bookstart Bear.
