Be The B.E.S.T To Achieve Success For All

Our Curriculum

Nursery education forms the first part of the Foundation Stage, and the curriculum is organised into seven areas of learning:


  • Communication and language
  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Physical development
  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design


Children at Reignhead Nursery learn through first-hand experience, play-based and teacher-led activities, following children’s interests and excitement. They are encouraged to take part in enjoyable learning activities in the classroom and outdoors in our Nursery playground and Woodland Area. Indoors, they also take part in small focused groups encouraging early Maths and Literacy. We encourage a love of learning, independence, focus and determination in order for children to succeed.


Nursery children are involved in the social life of the school, helping them experience a very successful transition to our Reception class.


Please see our long term overviews for some of the exciting topics and themes our learning covers.


During half term six, we will be learning all about 'Nursery Rhymes' and this is linked to our whole school topic which is called, 'Take One Book.'

We are always so busy in Nursery whether it be reading, acting out and learning about the Christmas Story, completing patterns in maths or playing bat and ball together!
