Duston Eldean Primary School

What our Children Learn

The Foundation Stage

In Reception children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which covers the following seven areas of learning: Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Physical Development; Communication and Language; Literacy; Mathematics; Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding the World.

The classrooms are divided into the different areas of learning and many of the activities undertaken by children are play based. The classroom is designed to be engaging and welcoming and the children are able to free flow between the areas. Children also have access to our outside classroom. We strongly promote the skills of independence and resilience.

Key Stage 1 and 2

This curriculum continues and progresses as the children join Year 1, to meet the statutory requirements for English, Mathematics, Science, ICT, Design Technology, Religious Education, Personal Health and Social Education, History, Geography, Music, Physical Education and Art. Much of this teaching will take place through integrated units of work which connect learning experiences for the children.

In addition, our Skills For Life programme provides pupils with the generic learning skills required throughout life.

From Year 3 pupils are taught French. Children at Duston Eldean have the opportunity to learn about a variety of different cultures, religions, festivals and lifestyles. If you would like to know more about your child's curriculum please see your class teacher or contact the school office.
