Current Parents - Curriculum


The broad theme of the curriculum is set every half term and communicated to parents via a newsletter. The themes are subject to change to reflect the children’s interests e.g. if it snows we might bring snow into the setting and introduce the children to animals that live in snowy environments or talk about freezing and thawing. Children are encouraged to bring in named items related to the theme to talk about at discussion time. Every day there will be a focused activity (often related to the theme) which is identified on the whiteboard at the start of the morning. At weekly planning meetings, an aspect of each area of learning is chosen for specific focus. During free play, the staff will evaluate the activity to ensure it meets the needs of all participating children.
