Henry Allen Curriculum

Our 9 curriculum goals

Exploring the world around us; our core experiences throughout the year.

Core experiences are evidenced in the above wheel, which highlights our opportunities for exploration, awe and wonder.  We build on children’s existing experiences and offer them new ways to increase their knowledge, understanding and skills.  We observe the children’s own interests and explore topics that they are interested in, which is woven into the weekly planning.  Weekly forest school enables children to explore the world around them, and see and understand changes that occur in our environment.

We believe in equal opportunities, celebrating the diverse background cultures of our children and encouraging them to share these within the setting. Regular visits within the local area, and opportunities to invite visitors into our setting, further enhance children’s learning experiences.
