Our Curriculum 2023-2024 


Our academic year is split into half termly topics. These are then broken down into themed weeks, all of which link to our main topic. Here are our topics for this academic year:


Autumn 1Marvellous Me
Autumn 2Winter Wonderland
Spring 1Superheroes
Spring 2Dinosaur Stomp
Summer 1I Can See A Rainbow
Summer 2Food Glorious Food


In addition to our half termly topics, we plan activities for our key children based on their interests to keep learning engaging and relevant to all children.




The older children in the setting have a daily phonics session - this is to make sure that the children are 'school ready' for next September and have had the practise  of listening to sounds in the environment and are beginning to hear initial and repeating sounds in words. The children look forward to their phonics session every day as each session is a game or fun activity that requires children to make noise!
