Bentilee Nursery School Curriculum

Topics for the year

Autumn term

Ourselves
The World

Spring Term

Food
Colour

Summer Term

Traditional stories and Rhymes
Animals

The curriculum is loosely based on these topics but is fluid to meet the needs and interests
of the unique child. We believe in a cross curricular approach based on the Early Years
Foundation Stage curriculum seven areas of learning and the characteristics of learning.

Phonics

We use the scheme “Jolly phonics”
We are using “Launchpad to literacy “ to support learning

Reading

When our children first enter nursery they take home library books weekly.
When they are ready we introduce them to:‐

  • the Harper Collins Big Cat and Big Cat phonics reading books,
  • Oxford Reading Tree phonic reading books
