We'll work closely with children to develop their mathematical understanding and give them a foundation for basic adding and subtracting.

As part of this area of the Early Years Foundation Stage, we'll teach children how to work, play, co-operate with their peers and function in a group beyond their family. We aim to encourage the development of their personal values and have an understanding of themselves and others.

We aim to focus on your child's developing knowledge and understanding of the environment around them. As part of this development, we'll look at the features of the natural and man-made world and the people and animals who live in it. This wide and exciting area will provide a foundation for historical, geographical, scientific and technological learning.

The physical development of children is an important part of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Through a wide variety of activities, both indoor and out, we aim to develop physical control, mobility, awareness of space and manipulative skills.
