What is covered during these sessions? 
At Hadleigh Infants and Nursery School our Early Years provision starts when the children enter the Nursery. As soon as the children start in Nursery they join the school’s inner community. They join the rest of the children during key events such as special assemblies and special days such as Sports Day. Both the children in Reception and Nursery use the school’s facilities and key personnel. Both groups of children benefit from our specialist PE coaches to further support their physical development.
When the children first come to Hadleigh Infants and Nursery, we build on the skills that their parents have already taught them. We encourage children to learn through play with others and so develop vital social and communication skills. We aim to help each child to have a love of books and the confidence to begin to write. We develop their early numeracy skills and encourage them to have a fascination in the world around them. Our children are given daily opportunity to exercise and to enjoy a range of creative activities. Our Foundation Stage curriculum is based on seven areas of learning:
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design
Through the activities, resources and interactions with their peers and adults children are encouraged to investigate, problem solve, ask questions and ponder in order to learn. We aim to have children who are inquisitive, independent, happy and enthusiastic. We hope that learners leave the Nursery prepared with the skills they need to tackle the next phase of their education. Every child is an individual and they have a right to have the best possible education which meets their personal learning needs. We work hard to achieve this by being creative with the resources and the different areas within the school environment. In addition children are encouraged to think creatively in how they develop the use of resources and ideas in their independent learning through play. Activities are planned to meet the needs of all individuals so that they are able to fulfil their potential. Adults carefully question and pose ideas to support the children in both their planned and spontaneous activities so that they can move on in their learning and thinking.
