Curriculum

Curriculum Overview:

EYFS

KS1

Long Term Planning:

In the EYFS, Nascot Wood Infants uses the Government non-statutory guidance document, Development Matters, to identify key stepping stones within the teaching sequences towards the final end points for each Area of Learning. Please click here to see the Development Matters document. Learning is contextualised in key themes, often based on the children’s interests, first hand experiences plus core books.

Medium Term Planning:

Skills Progression:

At Nascot Wood Infants, we have devised skills progression documents which map key skills, concepts and vocabulary across the whole school. In the EYFS, the skills progression documents link to outcomes in Physical Development, Understanding of the World and Express Arts and Design Areas of Learning.

Long Term Planning:

Skills Progression:

At Nascot Wood Infants, we have devised skills progression documents which map key skills, concepts and vocabulary across the whole school. In Key Stage 1, the skills progression documents relate to Science, Computing plus non-core subjects within the National Curriculum. 

At Nascot Wood Infant and Nursery School we use the HfL Essential Maths and English Planning Tools which outline the sequence of teaching for each area within the Maths and English Curriculum. This also covers the requirements of National Curriculum.

Enrichment Activities and Focus Weeks

Each term we organise a curriculum focus week plus a range of visitors, workshops and off-site visits. These provide further enrichment opportunities for children’s learning. Children come off their usual timetable and their learning is instead focused on a particular theme or subject area. They are able to explore concepts and deepen their understanding through a range of high quality first hand experiences, including workshops organised by visitors. Where possible focus weeks also include a Family Learning Morning, where parents and other family members are invited to come in and work alongside the children on joint projects. Themes for previous focus weeks have included Outdoor Learning, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), Creative Arts and Building Learning Power.
* Please note that due to necessary control measures during the COVID-19 pandemic, our enrichment offer has been curtailed.
