Learning and teaching – Nursery, Reception and Years 1 and 2
The curriculum has key skills in literacy and numeracy at its core, with daily lessons in each. Maths and literacy skills are introduced with fun, exciting and interactive methods. Early reading skills are developed through the use of our phonics scheme and language development is the focus for all aspects of learning. This is enhanced by exciting child-centred topics and discrete subjects that encompass Science, Humanities, Art and Design and Sport (including the seven areas of learning in EYFS). From the onset children are encouraged to have ownership of their learning and to share ideas and skills with each other. The priority is, however, to always ensure learning is fun and exciting.
