Early Years Foundation Stage

Our Nursery Curriculum

 

The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum Framework forms the basis of our provision.

Using the Characteristics of Effective Learning 3 areas  …

 

Play and Exploring

Active Learning

Creating and thinking critically

 

… the Nursery team aim to create a fun and stimulating environment where each child’s learning and development is supported effectively.

 

We recognise the fundamental role of play and multi-sensory exploration in children’s learning and offer children a range of stimuli, both indoors and out, to promote curiosity and engagement.

 

Through observation of children’s interests and developmental stages and discussion with families, experiences are planned across the seven areas of learning and development-

Prime Areas

Personal, Social and Emotional

Communication and Language

Physical

Specific Areas

Literacy

Maths

Understanding the World

Expressive arts and design

 

We aim to help children achieve this by:

Explore and make sense of the world

Practice new ideas and skills

Learn how to express and control feelings

Understand the need for rules

Be alone and co-operate with others

Take risks and make mistakes

Think creatively and imaginatively

Communicates with other as they communicate and solve problems

 

Children Learn when they are:

 

Given appropriate responsibility

Allowed to make errors, decision and choices

Respected as autonomous and competent learners

Actively doing rather than being told

Supported and trusted by a knowledgeable and trusted adult

 

Our simple daily routine allows children maximum opportunities to develop their understanding, to practise skills and to develop relationships within a consistent environment that supports security and promotes confidence.

 

The play space, both indoors and outside, is arranged in areas with appropriate resources stored nearby. These areas are reviewed through the year but generally include features of basic provision such as

 

Water

Sand

Construction—large and small

Small world

Physical—fine and gross

Creative

Malleable—sensory

Books

Music and Sound

Mark-making
