Communication & Language

Providing children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.

Physical Development

Providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive, to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children are also helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.

Personal, Social & Emotional Development

Helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.

Literacy Development

Encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.

Read Write Inc Scheme

We follow the "Read Write Inc" Letters and Sounds programme. This phonic based programme enables children to learn the correct letter sound to help ‘blend’ words when they are learning to become readers.

All members of staff have received relevant training to ensure that this system can be introduced correctly. If you are teaching your child at home to write letters please can you ensure that this is lower case only. As part of the read write programme we will teach children the correct letter formation.

Providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting,understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.

Understanding the World

Guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community, through opportunities to explore observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.

Expressive Arts & Design

Enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role play, and design and technology.

Oral Health

Oral Health is now included in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and, as a result we will now be introducing oral health into your child's learning. Currently tooth decay is still a serious problem among young children as nearly a quarter of all 5 year olds in England have tooth decay, and extraction is the most common reason for hospital admission for children aged 6 - 10. We will continue to promote healthy eating as this is important for good oral health.
