Our Early Years Curriculum

The Early Years is the first building block in a child's school career. At The Humberston C of E Primary School, we place a high emphasis on fostering a love of learning by creating a safe and stimulating environment and by giving the children the tools to develop their independence and enquiry skills.

Within the Early Years setting, we follow a long term plan that clearly shows coverage of the following areas:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
    • Making Relationships
    • Self-confidence and self awareness
    • Managing feelings and behaviour
  • Creating and Thinking Critically
    • Listening and Attention
    • Understanding
    • Speaking
  • Physical Development
    • Moving and Handling
    • Health and Self Care
  • Expressive Arts and Design
    • Exploring and using media and materials
    • Being Imaginative
  • Mathematics
    • Numbers
    • Shape, Space and Measures
  • Literacy
    • Reading
    • Writing
  • Understanding the World
    • People and Communities
    • The World
    • Technology

Much like the KS1 and KS2 curriculum, we include the children's own interests by asking the children to work together to choose their topic. The teachers then plan the content to meet the needs of the children through this topic. Children are assessed through ongoing observations during teacher led and child initiated activities.
