Characteristics of Learning
The framework supports children’s learning and development through:
Playing and exploring, active learning, creating and thinking critically
Through these characteristics we aim to develop children into resilient, independent, enthusiastic learners who are willing to have a go, take risks and keep trying.
For further details please refer to: The Early Years Parent’s guide.
Children are given weekly phonics and mathematics homework using the “Education City” online learning platform.
Once the children are familiar with a number of letter sounds and can blend them together, they are given reading books every week. Parents are asked to read with their children each night if possible.
