Personal, Social and Emotional Development

This area of learning is about our emotional wellbeing, knowing who we are and where we fit in, and feeling good about ourselves.
Here we learn to build relationships and develop our respect for others. So that we can co-operate and work harmoniously alongside, and with, each other and most importantly - listen to each other!
We work hard to build positive attitudes towards our learning. As a result of this, our confidence in our abilities and achievements will grow.   

Communication and Language

Here we practise our speaking and listening skills which help to develop our understanding.

Physical Development

Moving And Handling

It is important that we practise and develop both our fine and gross motor skills. From here we can improve our pencil control as well as being able to manipulate other tools and equipment. 

Health And Self-Care

Within this area of learning we develop our understanding of how our bodies work and what they need to do to stay healthy and safe. As our confidence in what they can do grows, our sense of well being improves.


In literacy we practise our reading and writing skills. We have a lot of fun in our phonic lessons, learning to blend the sounds together for reading and segment words for spelling. We can discover the meaning of words through a range of contexts and variety of books. We really enjoy exploring stories and use these as purpose for our writing.


In mathematics we develop our understanding of number starting with skills such as; counting, matching and ordering. Then using our number knowledge to solve problems such as addition and subtraction or doubling and halving.

In maths we also explore shape, patterns and measurement. We love to investigate and talk about them.

Understanding Of The World

People and Communities

We enjoy finding out about different people and all the places around the where we live but also across the world. We learn to respect and appreciate others. 

Understanding Of The World

It is really exciting to develop our knowledge and understanding to solve problems and make decisions. We learn to experiment, predict, plan and question in a variety of contexts. It is very interesting to explore and find out about the environment, and the plants and wildlife that grow within. 


We love to learn to use a range of technology. 

Expressive Art and Design

Here we can share our thoughts, ideas, and feelings through a variety of creative ways. These include; art and design, music, dance and imaginative role play.
