Foundation Stage 1  Curriculum

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage which breaks the curriculum into 7 areas of learning. Each area of learning is important, and the areas overlap.

  1. Personal , Social  and Emotional Development

We support children in developing confidence and independence. We encourage them to begin to form positive relationships and respect for each other. Children learn about managing their own feelings and behaviours. We support the development of attention and concentration skills.

  1. Communication and Language Development

We provide a language rich environment, encouraging the children to speak and listen in a variety of situations. We provide extra support for those children who need to build confidence or develop their speaking skills

  1. Physical Development

We give children opportunities to be active and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. We also teach children about the importance of good hygiene habits, fresh air, and healthy food choices

  1. Literacy

Children are given access to a wide range of books and stories to ignite their interest. They are encouraged to link sounds and letters. This is where early reading and writing is also developed.

  1. Mathematics

Children are provided with opportunities to develop their understanding and recognition of numbers, quantities and patterns.  They are also given frequent opportunities to use shapes, spaces, and measures within their play.

  1. Understanding the World

We support children’s understanding of the world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about places, people, the environment, and the natural world.

  1. Expressive Art and Design

Children explore a wide range of media and materials. They will experience a wide range of songs, rhymes, movement activities and stories.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

At Horndale Nursery, we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth, and development.
