  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Specific Areas:
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
These areas are covered through a mixture of adult directed and child-led learning. You can find more information on how to support these areas of learning by looking at our half-termly parent newsletter.
