Early Years

Early Years: for children aged 3 - 5

Our staff in Early Years are committed to giving every child a wonderful start to school life.

Every activity is planned so that the girls and boys can try things out for themselves, exploring and developing their capabilities along the way. We know that happy children make good learners so our Nursery Room is designed to make learning as fun as possible for our youngest children.

CURRICULUM

Our topic-based approach allows us to cover a broad range of subjects

We lay strong foundations in English and Maths on which pupils build their future academic success.

No matter the topic of study, we work in opportunities to introduce key Mathematical concepts such as number, measurement, patterns and shape. That way, the children get used to the idea that Maths is about engaging with the world around them – and that it is challenging, stimulating and creative.

At the same time, topic work allows us to explore a broad range of Humanities subjects, especially English. This method expands the horizons of our learners while also underpinning their core skills.

``Strong academic and teaching performance and a wonderfully nurturing environment for children.``

reading and writing

Building a love of language and reading

Each child’s progress is closely watched so that we can introduce reading books when they are ready to gain from them. We then ensure that every child takes home a different book each night, so that they remain stimulated and engaged, and are always practising and extending their vocabulary.

These reading skills are further built on by introducing the idea of writing. We help the children with the technical aspects of letter formation and spelling, but also encourage them to express themselves with confidence – the single most important attribute that we want the children to gain during the Early Years.
