The Bernards Heath Curriculum
As educators we understand how children develop and build their understanding of key concepts as they grow. To find out more about how these documents come to life, you can look at the Class Blogs. Teachers regularly write detailed blogs which include suggestions for how parents and carers can support their children with learning at home, as well as songs, stories and celebrations shared in the classroom.
Ensuring that our children learn about a broad range of diverse individuals is a priority. In Art and Design for example, we have ensured that the artists, craft makers and designers we share with children are from a range of diverse cultures, communities, and historical periods. It is vital that children can ‘see themselves’ in our curriculum, that we support them to develop a positive sense of self and that they are inspired.
These documents make clear the end of year expectations from Nursery to Year 2.
At Bernards Heath we know that children develop at different rates and some children will need additional support to acquire the key skills and knowledge detailed in the documents on this page. Other children may meet these objectives before the end of a year and they will have the opportunity to use their skills and knowledge in different contexts to deepen their understanding.
