In Nursery we follow general themes which are relevant to our children’s lives. These themes are loosely based around stories which alongside fun craft and speaking and listening activities combine to create an exciting Early Years curriculum. Children's interests from outside Nursery also play a big part in determining what we learn as we value children's interests and aim to build upon what they already know. We feel that by following the children's interests, the level of engagement is increased and meaningful links to prior learning are made.
The general topics we cover throughout the year are:
Autumn 1: All about me, feelings
Autumn 2: Bears, celebrations (Christmas)
Spring 1: Chinese New Year, Traditional tales
Spring 2: Nursery Rhymes, Easter
Summer 1: Growing, transitions
