At its core, our Early Years Reception curriculum is focused on the direct teaching of reading, writing and mathematics, embedding key vocabulary, listening comprehension, spoken language and problem solving skills into all aspects of children’s work.
Beyond this, children are enriched socially and emotionally through a wealth of outdoor learning opportunities, which teach communication and negotiation among the various soft skills that aid higher cognitive abilities, such as critical thinking and information processing. We fully immerse children in a specific topic for half a term, linking each area of learning to this topic. This accelerates pupils' development and takes them beyond the curriculum into a wider learning experience.
In addition to EYFS, our Reception pupils enjoy Art, Drama, French, Music and Sport delivered by our specialist teachers.
