Long Term Plan 2017-2018

At Thomas Boughey Nursery School we are passionate about enthusing and encouraging our children to develop an enquiring mind through a creative, exciting, motivating and varied curriculum. We offer a curriculum which is broad and balanced and which builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children, whatever their starting points. We have designed our curriculum so that it is both relevant and engaging for our children and their particular needs in order to prepare them for the future as well as being relevant of our local community.

The aim of our curriculum is for pupils to have the necessary skills to be successful, independent and motivated learners in readiness for their next stage of education. We want them to aim high, work hard and to have high aspirations for the future.

At Nursery we believe in a cross curricular approach to learning based on the seven areas of learning and the characteristics of learning. This is delivered by posing a new question to the children each week to develop their curiosity and understanding.
