Curriculum

What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.

At Maun Infant and Nursery School, we embrace the principles which shape the EYFS curriculum.  Every child from Nursery through to Year Two is unique and our curriculum ensures we are constantly developing learning, mastery skills, resilience, confidence and perseverance.  Although our curriculum is underpinned by the aims of the National Curriculum, there are other planned opportunities that make up the wider school curriculum.  Where links can be made, subjects are taught creatively in a cross-curricular thematic manner.  Where this is not achievable subjects are taught discretely.

Our curriculum has been created around the seven areas of learning from the Foundation Stage.  The skills and values that are taught from Early Years are woven into our Key Stage One curriculum and through the years at Maun, the children are given opportunities to be creative, imaginative, challenged and aspirational.

Homework Challenge

 

Homework challenges have now been set for the term and a range of fabulous work has already begun appearing in school.  Our displays will look amazing at this rate!  Remember that the challenges can be completed in any order and are linked to a variety of areas of the curriculum.  Read the challenges carefully and encourage your child to use his/her imagination to complete them - the more creative the outcome, the better!

 

Should you require any ideas to adapt the challenges to make them easier or more challenging, please do speak to your child's class teacher or TA.

 

On completion of 2 pieces of homework, children will receive a certificate.  When 4 challenges have been completed, they will receive a medal.  6 completed challenges will result in receiving a trophy.  Each class will display all completed homework pieces on a display board for all to see.  This will encourage the children and shown them how proud we are of their work.

 

We look forward to seeing all of your creative ideas.  These challenges have been designed so you can enjoy working with your child.  Remember slow and steady wins the race, and most importantly...

Have fun!

Grammatical Terminology

 

We always try to help you support your child at home with their learning.  Spelling and grammar are given such high priority in the National Curriculum now, it is important for parents to be as 'clued up' as possible when it comes to supporting children with their writing.  Here are some explanations which may help give some clarification:
