DEPARTMENT

Communication, Language and Literacy

This area will come through in most of the curriculum; specifics-are linking sounds and letters, final and medial phonemes in words and simple blends. The development of fine motor skills and pencil control, writing for different purposes, looking at elements of stories and developing reading skills are also advanced.

Knowledge and Understanding of the World

We encourage an interest and curiosity in our surroundings, reflected in greater analytical problem solving skills. Activities may take the format of directed exploration and play involving sand, water and modelling. Examples of the topics covered are: Pets/Minibeasts, Senses/Space, Transport/Growing Things or Jungle/Park.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

These skills are developed to enable the child to recognise and appreciate the need to conform to accepted social standards by encouraging daily routines, sharing good manners and looking at how we deal with our feelings. This program is co-ordinated with the reception class.

Mathematical Development

These skills are developed with the ability of the individual child. The children will look at counting, numeral recognition, ordering numbers, simple addition and subtraction, shapes, length, weight, height, symmetry, money and patterns.

Creative Development

The various topics covered in other areas, allow for many independent creative activities, which are available to children all of the time. Music is covered within topics, where the children sing familiar songs, name and use instruments, look at rhythm and use songs to link stories from around the world.

Physical Development

These are broken down into various activities which take place in our sports hall and in the many creative outdoor areas on site. The aim is to develop individual skills, e.g. balls skills – kicking/throwing/catching, to gymnastics & spatial awareness, to what the body can do and the rewards of exercise and how play can be a major influence in physical development.
