Teaching and learning in the Nursery

Mrs Renshaw

In Yellow and Orange classes our teaching and learning is based clearly on the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.

The children learn by:

Playing and exploring

Active learning

Creating and thinking

We focus particularly on the areas of learning called the Prime Areas, which are so vitally important in preparing the children for their full-time education:

Personal, Social and Emotional Development e.g. learning to share and take turns, helping others and developing friendships

Physical Development e.g.learning to climb and balance, catch a ball, hold mark-making tools and put on a coat

Communication and Language Development e.g.learning to listen carefully, talk about what is happening / has happened, hold conversations, ask questions, and retell stories
