All Reception Children follow a curriculum based on early learning goals. The curriculum concentrates on the development of the following areas:
Personal, social and emotional
Language and literacy
Knowledge and understanding of the world
From Year 1, the children follow the National Curriculum. The pattern of the classroom organisation is such that much of the work is done in small flexible groups, although there will obviously be occasions when the whole of the class will be taught all together.
The curriculum consists of:
The Core Subjects
English, Maths, Science, ICT, RE
The Foundation Subjects
PE, Music, Geography, History, Design and Tecnology, Art
This is now seen as a child's minimum entitlement. We hope to encompass this within a broad curriculum providing a suitable diversity of activities, matched to the needs of all pupils, providing genuine challenge and excitement and requiring increasingly sustained application on the part of the child.
