It is a time for discovery and to make new friends in an outstanding and vibrant learning environment.
Your daughter will feel a sense of excitement and of purpose as she embarks on her learning adventure at the Royal High School.
Early Years Curriculum
Within Nursery your daughter will start to develop through our seven areas of learning. The three prime areas are outlined below with the specific areas shown underneath. All areas are delivered through a combination of adult led and child initiated activities using resources which reflect diversity, and are free from discrimination and stereotyping.
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Children play co-operatively, taking turns with others. They take account of one another’s ideas about how to organise their activity. They show sensitivity to others’ needs and feelings, and form positive relationships with adults and other children.
Communication and Language
This area includes pre-reading skills, speaking, listening and understanding activities, which prepare children for reading. These activities provide a strong foundation of concepts and skills, which are essential before any reading can take place. Activities include jigsaws, threading, matching games such as lotto, recognising familiar words such as their own name, listening to and enjoying books and stories, learning rhymes and songs.
This area of development helps children master the skills of small movements, such as playing with pegs and lacing and holding crayons alongside gross motor skills, such as running, climbing and rolling.
