Our curriculum map in more detail

Curriculum letters are sent home to parents and carers every term. These give you information about important dates, special occasions, details of what your child will be learning within the half termly topics, as well as ways to support your child at home.

 

The children also have a home/school journal, where they are free to draw or write about anything that interests them. They may want to share a special occasion that they have experienced or they may want to add a leaflet, map or photo of a place that they have visited. The children can then share their journal with a member of staff once a week.

There is an expectation during the free flow sessions, that the children will complete one piece of guided writing for their folder every week. On a daily basis, the children will engage in free writing or mark making activities as well as number or shape, space and measure activities and challenges. The learning will take place through playing with and exploring the various small world activities, role play areas as well as the whole wealth of topic based experiences inside the classroom and outside.
