EYFS Curriculum

Our Nursery curriculum enables our children to continually demonstrate their ability to:

  •               Play and explore
  •               Learn actively 
  •               Create and think critically

The prime areas of learning are our focus, ensuring learning is child centred and supportive of becoming independent thinkers and learners. 

Children will be encouraged to take part in a range of activities to promote learning in the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. These are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
 Activities are planned to enable children to follow their interests and ideas and to participate in a broad and balanced range of activities linked to the EYFS Curriculum. 

Whilst at Nursery children can expect to experience: 

  • Settling in, learning routines and expectations
  • Learning how to share, take turns and cooperate with other people
  • Promote independence in self-care skills like putting on shoes/boots, aprons and washing hands
  • Making new friends

At Tregolls, we place huge importance on reading and sharing stories with children. Evidence proves that children who are read to and share story time with an adult go on to make better attainment and progress in their literacy skills. With this in mind we ask you to support your child in their early literacy development and choose a story book every day to take home and share together. Every child will be given a book bag and reading record and story books are available to borrow from the book boxes in class.
