Early Years

Our Intent

When you enter our Nursery and Reception classrooms you will see...


Every child has the opportunity to express their creativity and individuality through open-ended activities and access to a wide variety of quality resources.


A calm, purposeful environment where children are happy, safe, respectful and engaged in their learning.


Children are encouraged to work together to solve problems and share ideas. To respectfully challenge each other as well as to help each other when needed.


A nurturing environment surrounded by positivity where everyone is praised for their efforts and achievements.


Children are encouraged to explore and be curious in their learning. Setting their own challenges and building their resilience, becoming independent learners. 

Phonics- Read, write iNC

At St Modwen's we follow the Read, Write Inc phonics scheme.  In Nursery, children will be developing their listening and communication skills ready to start learning to read and write in Reception.  In Reception, your child will learn the sounds each letter makes and learn how to 'Fred talk' words to read and write.
