Foundation Stage Curriculum


The curriculum for Nursery and Reception children is planned to closely reflect the children's interests and therefore changes regularly. For this reason it would not be appropriate to produce a detailed yearly overview.

We aim to provide stimulating experiential learning which encourages the children's communication and language development, personal, social and emotional skills, physical development, literacy, mathematics, understanding of the world around them and creativity.

We use quality texts, linked to the children's interests, to promote a love of reading and an understanding of stories. Many of our activities are linked to the text to maximise learning opportunities and develop the characteristics of effective learning.

In addition to this, Reception children all follow a daily structured phonics programme called Read, Write Inc.

Parents are kept informed of the curriculum through regular newsletters and learning journeys on Tapestry.
