Our curriculum

A specialist Early Years qualified teacher leads the Nursery, engaging girls in activities to improve their skills and grow their confidence.

Our rich EYFS curriculum

A mixture of self-directed and teacher-led activities prepares girls for a seamless transition into Reception classes, as well as building confidence and skills for life beyond school.

 

The seven areas

Our rich EYFS curriculum is made up of seven distinct areas, including the three prime areas of Communication and Language; Physical and Personal, Social and Emotional development. Specialist teachers also lead extra activities in Music, Sport, Languages and Forest School on a weekly basis.

Communication and Language

Girls are offered a language rich environment to develop their confidence in expressing themselves. We encourage a love of books, role play and songs, which all enable language, vocabulary and speaking to take-off!

Physical Development

Girls develop their fine and gross motor skills, co-ordination, balance and movement. Both indoor and outdoor learning environments are used to develop this prime area of learning.

Personal, Social and Emotional

We encourage and support girls as they nurture friendships, build social skills and develop emotional literacy so that they can express themselves and manage their emotions.

Literacy

Books, stories and poems underpin girls’ learning in this area, igniting their interests in a range of subjects. Our excellent lending library ensures that the love of books also extends to the home.

Understanding the World

Being able to explore the world, including our local area, forms an exciting part of our Nursery. Girls find out about the world and environment we live in, the places and people that live here and the technology available.

Mathematics

Stimulating activities are delivered to develop knowledge of numbers, counting, shapes and patterns.

Expressive Arts and Design

Arts, crafts, music and role play are included in abundance to help girls express themselves, use their imaginations and develop a range of skills while they have lots of fun.
