'Teaching in the early years secures good progress for children. They are naturally inquisitive learners who respond positively to the learning environment. There is no significant difference in the progress made by different groups of children, and the additional funding for disadvantaged children is used appropriately. Children readily engage in the indoor and outdoor activities they choose for themselves. The vast majority are able to concentrate well for extended periods of time. For example, a group of children who chose to make flat mud pancakes outside took time with the task and were delighted with the finished product, which they decided they would weigh. They were well supported in this by adults who asked them which was heavier or lighter.' OFSTED 2019

During the year, we focus on developing children's skills across the three 'Prime Areas of Learning'

1: Personal, Social and Emotional Development

This covers the areas of Making Relationships, Self-Confidence & Self-Awareness and Managing Feelings & Behaviours.

2: Physical Development

This covers the areas of Moving & Handling and Health & Self-Care

3: Communication and Language

This covers the areas of Listening & Attention and Understanding & Speaking

These three prime areas are particularly crucial for igniting children's curiosity and enthusiasm for learning and building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. 

In addition, we also teach the children the four 'Specific Areas of Learning' below:

1: Literacy

This covers the areas of Reading & Writing
