Kindergarten

Our Early Years programme is guided by the UK’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework to provide quality educational experiences for learners from two (2) years to five (5) years old. The EYFS sets standards for the learning, development and care of children.

It supports an integrated approach to early learning and care and gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.

Our programme promotes teaching and learning in a supportive environment where our learners are prepared to take risks. They develop knowledge, skills and understanding which provide a solid foundation and readiness to enter our primary programme.

Key Stage 1

Educates children from five to seven years old through Year 1 and Year 2 of their primary education. Woodcreek School aims to deliver the British National Curriculum by providing its students with the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding required to become lifelong learners.

Our curriculum in Years 1 and 2 exposes children to formalised lessons in the three core areas of learning – Literacy, Numeracy and Science – while also covering a range of non-core foundation subjects with the aim of providing a holistic learning journey. In KS1, our students continue to learn through inquiry and discovery, and further explore their creative abilities. They develop their social-emotional skills through guided play, develop a greater sense of independence, and continue on their journey of personal and academic growth.

Assessment at Woodcreek School is continuous, clarifying what each child should know, understand and do in a lesson. It also encourages children to review what they have learnt and the next steps in their learning, utilising a range of strategies. Data from evaluation is used to celebrate children’s achievements, identify areas of development and inform planning for the school as a whole. Assessment is carried out through target setting, project work, written assessments and homework assignments.
