Curriculum

Early Years

Our curriculum at Norwich is based on the National Curriculum for England, Wales and Northern Ireland, adapted to our international setting and our Values. We enhance the curriculum with a provision for mindfulness and with a deliberate focus on Mandarin. Children in Early Years at Norwich specifically follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which sets standards for development and care for children to 5 years old.

Playdate is a time, usually two mornings per week, where parents can bring their 1 year-old babies and toddlers to spend time together, play, sing and enjoy our facilities.

Our point of entry for formal learning is Pre-Nursery, which starts in January each year and runs for Terms 2 and 3. To enroll in Pre-Nursery a child would need to be turning 3 between September 1st and December 31st of that year.

Nursery is for children turning 3 during the academic year (between September 1st and August 31st of the following year), Kindergarten is for children turning 4 during the academic year and Reception is for children turning 5 during the academic year.

The Homeroom teachers deliver the English, Mathematics, ICT and Connected Learning (Geography, History and Science) aspects of the National Curriculum and Specialist Teachers deliver the rest of the curriculum. 

The specialist lessons in Early Years are:
 

Early Years Foundation Stage Profile

Nursery – 5 specialist lessons: Thai, Mandarin, Waterplay, Physical Education and Music. The Homeroom teacher provides some informal mindfulness opportunities and the children have nap/quiet time, an afternoon break and finish their day at 2.45pm.
