2021-22

In the Nursery we aim to foster independence and build self-esteem. We do this by organising the environment inside and outside so that children can choose where to learn and can access well labelled resources without help.

Children know where to find what they need and are given responsibility for tidying up. We aim to follow daily routines so that children feel secure and soon learn what will happen next.  The routine involves a combination of large group, small group and independent activities.

Annual Curriculum Overview 2021-22

In the EYFS we consider children’s interests when planning our curriculum.  We aim to provide children with a broad and balanced curriculum that will provide children with the opportunity to make as much progress as possible whilst developing a love and enthusiasm for learning.

We create a simple plan based on our observations of children’s interests as they enter Nursery and Reception.  The details of the curriculum to be taught are added each half term but can be subject to change depending on the children.

A more detailed plan is added onto the class pages at the beginning of each half term so you can see what your child will be learning in school and use this to help support them with their learning at home.

Please select the document below to see the topics we will be learning about this year.

Vocabulary

In the Early Years we realise the importance of developing children’s vocabulary.  We use a wide range of books and stories to help extend children’s vocabulary.  Please help to support this by looking at the vocabulary sheets and help your child to use this vocabulary at home.  The more children hear and use new words the more they can remember them.  Children with a wider range of vocabulary often make the best progress at school.

Please keep checking the website regularly for new vocabulary sheets.

Thank you.
