Curriculum

We are passionate about every child’s learning! Each child is unique and at the Brook Infant School and Nursery we celebrate children’s talents and interests. We know that we learn best is when we are interested and motivated.

The world in which our children grow up into will be very different from now and we need to make sure that the skills the children have prepare them for this. Skills such as innovation, risk taking, problem solving, resilience and flexibility will be paramount. They will need to be creative, able to think outside the box and ready for any challenges that might lay ahead.

At the Brook Infant School and Nursery we provide an exciting and stimulating environment in which our children can confidently and safely explore the world around them. That they learn in the outside environment as well as indoors and we ensure we cater for the whole range of learning styles.  We believe that children learn through practical hands on experience, structured play and recording their ideas and work.

Our curriculum is designed to enable children to fulfil our vision of becoming responsible global citizens who are life long learners. The spine of our curriculum is set upon our sparkly rights and developing children’s personal, social, emotional, spiritual, moral, intellectual and physical well being. We aim to help children develop a respect and responsibility for themselves, their peers, their community and their world.

Here at Brook Infant School and Nursery we teach through exciting whole school learning themes. Below is our three-year thematic plan for each year group. Nursery works alongside Reception as well as following the children’s own interests.
 
We believe that reading is central to all children's learning.  Texts are central to all our thematic work and we ensure that we use beautiful literature across our school.  We use our texts to extend vocabulary and develop our children's speaking and listening as these are fundamental skills that enable our children to develop as learners.
