Our Key Focus is Personal, Social and Emotional Development.


Personal, Social and Emotional Development: We will form good relationships with peers and adults. We will gain confidence in trying new activities, and will say when we do or don’t need help.


Physical Development: We will manage our own basic hygiene and personal needs successfully, including dressing and going to the toilet independently. We will negotiate space successfully, adjusting speed or changing directions.


Communication and Language: We will listen in different situations and activities, to others one to one or in small groups, when conversations interest us. We will use the past tense accurately when talking about events that have happened.


Understanding the World: We will talk about past and present events in our lives. We will talk with our families to discover why we are called our chosen names. We will ask questions and comment on out new school environment.


Expressive Arts and Design: We will create simple representations of people when painting self-portraits. We will explore what happens when we mix colours, and explore combining different media.


Literacy: We will make sure that everyone can recognise their own name, and understands that print carries meaning. We will use the pattern of repetitive texts to start to recall and read them. We will make marks which include recognisable letters, and write names and words of personal significance.  


Mathematical Development: We will build strong foundations by singing lots of number songs and playing dice and number track games. We will count, recognise numerals and find the matching quantity and start to order numbers. We will recognise, describe and continue simple patterns, using objects, sounds, actions, shapes and colours.
