Nursery and Reception
In Nursery and Reception we follow the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Children learn through play which includes structured and independent play. The children are observed regularly and the teachers plan based on the children’s interests. In Nursery and Reception the secular and Jewish studies curriculum is taught through an integrated curriculum (except for Hebrew reading). Formal teaching of reading and writing begins in Reception. In Nursery and Reception phonics is taught using Jolly Phonics, Espresso and Read, Write Inc schemes.
