Curriculum

 

We aim to make our curriculum as relevant to the children as possible, in terms of their needs and understanding. Our lessons are devised as relevant to the children as possible, in terms of their needs and understanding. Our lessons are devised to include lots of opportunities for turn taking, co-operation and rehearsal of vocabulary skills, sentence structure and phonetical knowledge.

 

Our classroom is set up with many areas of continuous provision, although these are often more guided than they would be ordinarily be in an early years setting. These areas include sand, small world, role play, construction, creative, reading area, writing and drawing and floor activities. We also always have a selection of adult led games and tasks ready for individual children to use under adult direction. These activities include fine motor games and tasks, jigsaws,  computer learning games, pattern matching, threading, dominoes and a variety of learning games. During our morning sessions, at least one of our staff members will be working with children on an English or Maths activity. Our other team members will usually be working within the continuous provision areas in a variety of ways, scaffolding different levels of learning that focus on the development of different skills. Much of our learning takes place in a paired session or one to one basis.
