EARLY YEARS- Age 2 to 5 year olds
Our Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is carefully planned to offer experience in the seven areas of learning and development. We use the Tapestry online learning journal which enables us to fully track our children using a home-school partnership.
We plan a mixture of adult-led activities and child-initiated activities and the children enjoy an enriched curriculum which includes Forest School, PE and Music with specialist teachers. The children also go on a range of outings, including visits to local farms, Goodwood Aerodrome and Marwell Zoo.
Pupils can start on a minimum of two sessions per week in the Nursery and build up their time as desired in full or part days. Pupils that stay for a full day enjoy a home cooked lunch made from fresh produce.
In Reception, we introduce languages and pupils can choose between Spanish and French, with the opportunity of joining a club for their second choice of language should they wish. It is also in Reception that the children join our House System and are able to take part in House activities and competitions.
