In Early Years, there are seven areas of learning and development: Personal, Social, Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. Children will have daily phonics, maths and topic focused sessions delivered through adult-led activities both as a whole class and in small groups. The children also have the opportunity to pursue their own, child-initiated activities and interests. Click on the coloured pencils below to look at our wonderful work.
