Early Years

Areas of Learning

Your child will mostly be taught through games and play.

The areas of learning are:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development
  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • understanding the world
  • expressive arts and design


Their class teacher will assess them at the end of the school year when they turn 5.  The assessment is based on classroom observation - your child won’t be tested. It uses the early learning goals, which can be found in the early years framework

Early Years Curriculum

Spring 1 - Amazing Animals

Chinese New Year

Monday 31st January - Wednesday 2nd February

The reception children thoroughly enjoyed learning all about Chinese New Year.  They listened to the story of the great animal race, explored making money wallets, weaved chinese lanterns and coloured a Chinese dragon by number.  We all came to school dressed in red on Tuedsay 1st February and we enjoyed some Chinese food at snack time.  Finally, to celebrate the year of the tiger the children took it in turns to paint eachc other as a tiger using orange, black and white face paint.
