This is where your child’s learning journey begins! Through meaningful activities and exciting experiences, we support children to learn through play.
Using a balance of child led learning and adult led teaching, we work to develop children’s confidence, social skills and perseverance in addition to their academic ability.
At Brookland we teach phonics (how to read) using a programme called Read, Write, Inc. This programme support children to learn how to identify sounds and eventually blend them to read words with the help of ‘Fred’ the frog.
We support children’s math development through activities that are designed to make learning engaging and help children to develop a secure understanding of mathematical concepts, which ensures that children have to skills they need as they move up through the school.
We also follow a creative curriculum that provides opportunities for children to explore new concepts, try new things and learn in a holistic way. Our use of child led play also allows us to follow the child’s interest so we can really help them develop a love of learning.
