Nursery Curriculum

Our comprehensive curriculum gives a wide range of opportunities for your children to develop their cognitive skills while promoting their social, emotional and physical development.

The curriculum we implement follows the Welsh Assembly Government’s Foundation Phase guidelines, which promote the holistic development of children through seven areas of learning:

  • Personal & Social Development, Well-being & Cultural Diversity
  • Language, Literacy & Communication Skills
  • Mathematical Development
  • Welsh Language Development
  • Knowledge & Understanding of the World
  • Physical Development
  • Creative Development

However, we also introduce more structured and formal teaching methods to prepare the children for Reception Class and their continued education throughout the school. We are able to make the most of the specialised teachers in St Clare’s Senior School. Mrs Smart comes to teach the children basic French and Spanish while the nursery staff use incidental Welsh throughout the day.

Nursery Topics

Over a two-year cycle, we incorporate the following topics with our Nursery children:

  • Colours
  • Seasons and the Weather
  • People Who Help Us
  • Animals
  • All About Me
  • Nursery Rhymes
  • Mini Beasts
  • Opposites and Shapes
  • Celebrations

We go on trips within the local community including visits to; the church, the library and the Lifeboat Station, for which we are able to use our own school minibus. The children are also able to benefit from using the School’s own woodland area and the Nursery garden to learn about Nature while enjoying the local beach and sand dunes. We also invite lots of visitors in to tell the children about their jobs, religions and animals. The children love to meet new people in this way!
