Over the last few weeks we have been busy putting together our long term planning, loosely based on themes.
Our planning reflects the interests of the children and includes child initiated, adult led and spontaneous activities and experiences.
In order to plan for each individual child, staff observe children and challenge them to take their next steps in their learning, which is why we also complete weekly planning linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage and is much more individualised.

The themes are as follows:
September – Marvellous Me
October – Autumn Changes
November – Our Senses
December – Traditional Tales and Nursery Rhymes
January – Space
February – Dinosaurs
March – Transport
April – In the Garden
May – Homes
June – Under the Sea
July – Down in the Jungle
August – Colours and Shapes

In additional to this we have put together a celebration calendar of the events that we are going to focus on throughout the year.
