a wide range of reading materials to develop their love

and understanding of stories and poems.

Understanding the World

Children will be guided to make sense of their physical world

and their community through opportunities to explore, observe

and find out about people, places, technology and the


Expressive Arts and Design

Children will explore a wide range of media and materials  and have opportunities to share their ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play, and design and technology.

Foundation Stage Profile

The seven areas of the EYFS Curriculum form the basis for our assessment of your child's progress whilst in their reception year. Assessment is informal and ongoing, taking place during the

course of an ordinary day. This ongoing assessment helps us to build up a profile of your

child which forms the basis of a written report in the summer term.
