At Hill View Infant Academy we are carefully considering our curriculum for the autumn term as we recognise that the situation over the last few months may have affected the children’s emotional wellbeing and mental health. Our way of life has changed considerably throughout the pandemic and the children may have experienced many losses, from a loss of freedom to move around and meet people as we have been used to, to a loss of structure and opportunity.
With this in mind, the curriculum will be carefully planned to gently introduce the children back into school life, whilst considering their emotional well-being as well as their academic needs. We are acutely aware that the children will learn to the best of their ability when they feel happy, safe and secure.
The curriculum focus for our children within the early years will be the prime areas of learning, including communication and language, personal, social and emotional development and physical development. For those children in Reception, this will also include early phonics, reading, maths knowledge and skills. For children in Year 1 and 2, our staff will be assessing any gaps that the children may have in their learning particularly within phonics, reading, vocabulary development, writing and maths. We will be ensuring that our curriculum is still broad and covers all areas.
