Kindergarten Classroom

Curriculum Intent

  • We believe children learn best when experiences are first-hand and linked to their interests.

  • We value play and the powerful opportunities it provides for children to build on previous learning in a meaningful and purposeful way. Children learn by leading their own play and by taking part in play which is led by adults.

  • Our curriculum is based on the EYFS Development Matters July 2021 version, as it offers a top-level view of how children develop and learn, it consists of everything we want children to experience, learn and be able to do, whilst providing a smooth transition for children as they continue their journey onto school and continue to build upon their prior knowledge and experiences from nursery.

  • Our curriculum focuses on depth in learning as it is important to give a child many opportunities to deepen their understanding and knowledge.

  • We provide opportunities for children to consolidate skills and make links in learning, whilst also promoting early language development.

  • Continuous provision encompasses a range of activities and different approaches to learning to meet the diverse learning styles that children have.

  • We foster and encourage independence to enable children to become future leaders.

  • We offer a play based provision where children can revisit, rehearse, and consolidate their learning.

  • We believe that play is a vehicle for learning, children can express themselves, develop and articulate their skills.

  • We offer spaces where children can play and explore with a balance of quality adult interactions and adult instructions in an environment that has been prepared to support development and learning.
