Throughout the Nursery and Reception Year your child will share, join in with and add to an ambitious curriculum which is planned in a sequential way to ensure progress.
The curriculum is delivered through a balance of adult led and child led learning. It incorporates what we want the children to experience, learn and be able to do. Meeting all the requirements of the educational programmes in the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and importantly the flexibility to allow us to respond quickly to children’s new interests and/or needs.
Below is a broad overview of what we are learning this half term. Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development. All areas are interconnected.

How to support your child at home
Please see below for further documents which you may find helpful.
The document below supports understanding of the seven areas of learning and development at particular ages and stages
What to expect in the Early Years Foundation Stage:
There are six key areas of early mathematics learning, which collectively provide a platform for everything children will encounter as they progress through their maths learning at primary school, and beyond:
• Cardinality and Counting
• Shape and Space
These areas form the fundamental mathematical basis of a CBeebies series of five-minute animated programmes called Numberblocks. We use these and the NCETM materials to draw out and build on the maths embedded in the stories contained in each episode.
