    Early Years Curriculum

    Activities in nursery and reception are carefully planned and organised in order to provide a range of learning experiences. Individual records are kept by staff to record the activities your child participates in and undertakes, as well as their progress in specific skills.

    Planning for each week is carried out using a topic-based approach, following the children’s interests and responding to specific events.

    There are 7 Areas of Learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which activities are planned around:


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



    Throughout the EYFS, children will be working towards the Early Learning Goals. These describe the level of attainment expected at the end of your child’s Reception year in school.
