    We encourage the children to select and use activities and resources, with help when needed. This enables them to achieve a goal they have chosen or one which is suggested to them.

    We encourage the children to develop their phonological awareness and a love of books. Our aim is to help children understand the meaning of ‘print’ and its many different purposes, whilst expanding their vocabulary and understanding.

    We arrange resources to encourage the children to play with increasing confidence on their own and with others. They are able to do this knowing that their key person is there to support them.

    Children are powerful learners. Effective pedagogy is a mix of different approaches. Children learn through play, by observing one another and through guided learning and direct teaching.

    Young children’s learning is often driven by their interests. Our curriculum planning is flexible to ensure we use their interests to encourage and motivate them to learn.

    We introduce children to a broad selection of action songs from different cultures and languages, and encourage them to accompany the actions and sounds with movements or musical instruments.
