Nursery

LONG TERM PLAN

In Nursery we cover 7 areas of learning. Throughout the year, we will be delivering a range of activities which will lead children towards an understanding of the statements outline below. These activities will be revisited through different experiences/contexts to embed learning and deepen understanding. We approach learning through a main topic/stories, then move learning forward, using the interest of the individual learners.
