Curriculum

We provide an age appropriate, rich and balanced curriculum that introduces each child to a range of concepts and experiences, and knowledge and skills for lifelong learning.

The curriculum in our Early Years Department is based upon the national guidelines for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), incorporating the seven main areas of learning. Key priorities are reading, writing and mathematics, with more formal activities gradually introduced to fully prepare the children for Key Stage 1.

Early Years at Weston Green provides an excellent framework that recognises the importance of play and how it underpins both development and learning for young, curious and inquisitive minds. Through spontaneous and adult-led play, we observe how children’s intellectual, creative, physical, social and emotional development impacts on their learning and we plan further challenges and opportunities for them to extend their knowledge and understanding. 

Recently, children in Reception opened their own Dinosaur Museum and enjoyed learning about different roles, through role-play. Watch a short video about this activity on the left hand side of this page.

The curriculum is enhanced by a number of trips and visits throughout the school year, such as Kindergarten’s popular trip to the Polka Theatre, Reception's trip to pick pumpkins at Garson's Farm and The Maths Magician. The children's performances to parents at Christmas time, Harvest and other points throughout the year, allow them to build their confidence and express their creativity.

As each child progresses through the Foundation Stage their skills and development are monitored, assessed and personal targets set to ensure they are learning at their own pace and achieving their potential.
