Early Years Curriculum

This year, alongside Reception, we have become 'Early Adopters' of the new curriculum for EYFS. Within this new curriculum, it has prime areas and specific areas of learning just like the previous document we followed. This curriculum has been designed as a guide to show you what the children could be learning at the age they are.

The prime areas are:                                                                                The specific areas are:

Communication and language                                                                 Literacy

Personal, social emotion development                                                   Mathematics

Physical development                                                                               Understanding the world

        Expressive arts and design. 


Prime Areas 3-4 Year olds

Specific Areas 3-4 Year olds

EYFS Virtual Tour

We change our provision based on our children's interest and also for any festivals or celebrations that are happening to teach them about the world through their play. We like children to be fascinated and captivated by their learning experiences in nursery so that they are engrossed in what they are doing and therefore learn in a deep and meaningful way. We want the children to thrive and therefore encourage independence. At the heart of all of what we do is communication. We want children to be exposed to new language through stories, investigations, trips and experiences, role-play activities, through their imaginative play and more! New language can be learnt everywhere from learning the words to describe capacity in the water tray to learning how to use story language with our puppet show. Our children's well-being is so important to us, too, which is why we use their interests to guide their learning in nursery. If you would like to know more about how we do things in nursery, please ask one of the nursery staff team!
