Manor Primary School


Robins class is a mixed Nursery/Reception class. Mr Foreman, is the class teacher and is supported by our Robins Teaching Assistant.

Here at Manor, we recognise that settling into school is a big step for your child and we endeavour to make it a happy transition.

Our aim is to make school a happy, stimulating and rewarding environment for your child to discover, learn and play in a wide range of experiences.

The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum

EYFS curriculum at Manor takes into account the young child’s aptitude to learn through different forms of activity – in particular play, talk and first-hand experiences. It is organised into seven areas of learning and includes both adult directed and child-selected activities that best respond to their needs and interests:

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

This area of learning helps children to feel good about themselves and others so they are able to develop positive relationships. It supports them to become independent, excited and motivated learners.

Communication and Language and Literacy

This helps children to develop language through: talking, thinking and listening in different situations. To support children in their early reading and writing they are encouraged to: mark make, enjoy stories, books and rhymes and link sounds and letters.


This area of learning includes developing mathematical understanding through: stories, songs, games, everyday activities and imaginative play. It helps them to enjoy experimenting and becoming confident and curious about: numbers, shapes, patterns and measures.

Understanding the World

In this area of learning, children develop knowledge, skills and understanding that help them to make sense of the world. This is the foundation for later work in: history, geography, RE, science, design technology and ICT.

Physical Development

Making progress in physical development, particularly fine and gross motor skills, gives children confidence and enables them to feel the benefits of being healthy and active.

Expressive arts and design

This area of learning includes: art, music, dance, drama and imaginative play - opportunities for children to try new experiences and express themselves in a variety of ways.
