Fun, Creativity & Achievement

Early Years


Ambition

Our Early Years curriculum provides children with an exceptional foundation, which fosters a lifelong love of learning. Through our themed learning experiences, children are encouraged to take an active role in their learning, resulting in creative, resilient learners. Our passionate team has the child at the center of everything they do, providing a caring, supportive environment where children feel safe to develop as an individual. We believe that this provides our children and families with an exceptional start to school.

Implementation

At Holne Chase Primary School you will find our children fully immersed in their learning, with creative opportunities, centering around themed learning experiences that form our rich curriculum.

Reading and Phonics is a central part of our EYFS, with daily phonics sessions, individual reading, and class storytime. We foster a love of reading in the children, by exposing them to a wide variety of books in their literacy sessions.

Literacy and Maths sessions are embedded into our curriculum, with exceptional experiences where children can consolidate their learning in both indoor and outdoor settings.

The importance of early number and the opportunity to write is evident throughout our setting, with key learning planned into all areas, forming a strong foundation.

We believe our children’s physical development is just as important as their intellectual development and our classrooms, the outside classroom (which we are currently revamping), and other outdoor areas, including our forest school area, allow learning opportunities to develop the whole child.

Impact

Our approach leads to happy children, with a love for learning and school and families that feel at the heart of their school community and who truly believe that Holne Chase Primary is their school.

The proportion of children nationally achieving a Good Level of Development in Year R in 2019 was 72%. At Holne Chase Primary 85% of children achieved a Good Level of Development.
