There are 3 prime areas; Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Physical Development. There are 4 specific areas; Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
In Nursery we primarily concentrate on the Prime areas of the Early Years Curriculum, these are Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Physical Development.
In Nursery we complete our own baseline to gather the children’s individual starting points.
We also deliver daily phonic sessions following guidance from RWI.
Each half term we have a different theme to base our learning around, however Early Years at New Hartley First School is all about following the children’s interests and ensuring we challenge and support through play.
