A child's development depends on sustained growth and so our curriculum in the Foundation Stage is based on seven areas of learning. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected.
There are three prime areas:
Communication and language;
Personal, social and emotional development.
And four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied:
Understanding of the world
Expressive arts and design.
(for more information refer to the 'Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage').
- Art and Design
- Design and technology
- Languages (Italian)
- Physical Education.
Subjects are grouped together which are sympathetic and complement each other in order to make learning experiences more practical and meaningful for the children. This is further enhanced throughout the school year by whole school 'Creative Days' and termly ‘Specialist Weeks.’
