OUTSTANDING EARLY YEARS PROVISION AT NORTHWOOD

"Children in the early years thrive in this exceptionally well-led setting" - Ofsted Report, 2019

Your child’s ‘Learning Journey’ begins in Early Years. Early Years is the bedrock of all learning and is a critical stage of your child’s development.

 

 

Curriculum Intent

  • Pupils will develop language acquisition and expand their vocabulary in order to become confident and effective communicators.

  • Pupils will extend their understanding in personal, social and emotional development in order to become resilient and self assured learners.

  • Pupils will be taught how to manage their feelings and behaviour in a range of situations.

  • Pupils will develop their knowledge in early literacy and mathematics.

  • Pupils will acquire a range of physical key skills including: rolling, bowling, throwing, catching, fine and gross motor control.

  • Pupils will acquire a range of artistic key skills including: drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, textiles, printing.

  • Pupils will explore the world around them and deepen their understanding of living things and the environment.

  • Pupils will experience a curriculum immersed in story and literature.

  • Pupils will begin to transfer their learning (taught skills) into the wider environment especially the outdoors and become competent problem solvers.

 

 

 

The Early Years curriculum is delivered through:

  • Well planned and purposeful play based activities

  • Teacher directed lessons and learning activities

  • Child led activities

  • Opportunities for exploration, choice and decision making by the children
