Mathematics

Our curriculum extends from the Early Years Foundation Stage framework and has an emphasis on mathematics that encourages pupils to have depth in their understanding of Number, Shape, Space and Measures. This emphasis on mathematics has the approach where we believe “The answer is only the beginning” and we expect parents and pupils alike to explain how they got to the answer and an alternative method of working it out.

Modern Languages

In addition we genuinely believe pupils who are educated at our setting will be leaders in the future, with this in mind we expose children to several modern languages with our expert language tutors who will be coming in weekly and will teach the lessons entirely in another language and each week the children learn through fun exercises, role play, songs and rhymes.

Monthly workshops

The monthly workshops will run in order to continue the learning at home. It is important parents come to the sessions that will be on a Saturday morning for 2 hours at 10:00am followed by a light lunch, these sessions are designed to give you as a parent the necessary tools to help your child explore in a way that will not confuse them (in particular reading and writing). It will be a time for the teachers to tell you about the learning, demonstrate using some of the materials we may be sending home and for parents to ask questions when unsure about the next steps.

    Potty Training

    All children potty train at different ages and in different ways. Environments other than home can have an effect on children. If a child is engrossed in an activity they may forget about the toilet/potty and may well wet them selves. Some children need a lot of confidence and reassurance.
