We follow the EYFS Curriculum which came into effect in September 2012.This framework is a means of ensuring high standards of early education and care that will reassure parents that their child’s development is being fully supported.

The EYFS underpins all future learning by supporting and fostering the children's personal, social and emotional wellbeing. It encourages positive attitudes and dispositions towards learning in the children and promotes learning through play.

We plan our curriculum by implementing half termly topics which motivate and 'hook' the children into learning. All of the Areas of Learning are then planned through these topics.

We use observations of children’s learning and achievements to inform planning.Planning is differentiated throughout our Early Years and activities are planned to aid smooth transitions continuity and progression. Curriculum planning is continually monitored for quality, relevance and effectiveness. Planning meetings take place to discuss and evaluate teaching objectives and outcomes and this is then fed into future planning. Letters and Sounds is used as our synthetic phonics programme. All children have access to high quality rigorous daily phonics. Phonics is taught discreetly for 20 minutes and then skills learnt are applied through Communication & Language opportunities.

Handwriting will be introduced as the year progresses, using Cambridge Pen Pals as a framework.

Reading plays a vital part in the curriculum. Children have access to a range of fiction/non-fiction texts and are able to take books home on a regular basis to share with adults. The school uses a selection of phonetically regular scheme and ‘real’ books.
