Our Curriculum


In Reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which is the curriculum until they enter the Primary National Curriculum in Year 1.

There are seven areas of development which the children will be assessed against throughout the year. Children are expected to achieve a ‘Good Level of Development’ by the end of the year. This is achieved by meeting the Early Learning Goals which can be found using the curriculum links below.

We work closely with families and other professionals to ensure that all children are given the best opportunities to achieve their fullest potential.

Learning Journeys


In Giraffe Class, we use paper learning journeys to document children’s learning and development. This is a collection of photographs, observations and children's work that builds a picture of each child's learning. You will be invited in before parents evening to look at these with your child.


We will also sometimes be using tapestry to share some learning and exciting activities we may have out. We encourage families to share "wow" moments on tapestry. The children love to share their photos from home with the class and it is a great opportunity for them to develop their confidence, especially when speaking to a large group.
