  • communication, language and literacy: providing opportunities for children to listen and express themselves in a range of situations; supporting children to read and write with confidence;
  • mathematics: providing children with opportunities to explore and practically solve problems applying and developing their skills in counting, using addition/subtraction; multiplication/division; shape, space and measure;
  • understanding the world: providing opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment;
  • expressive arts and design: enabling children to explore their ideas and feelings using a variety of media and materials; providing a range of activities in art, music, dance, role-play, drama and design technology.

Continuous assessment ensures that the learning pathway of each child is closely tracked and monitored. We ensure that there is challenge for the more able and provision for children with additional needs. Through effective teaching practice we support, embed and extend learning throughout the daily learning pathway of each child.
