Early Years Curriculum.


We have developed the Millfield Curriculum using Statutory Guidance and our school ethos to create the best start for Millfield children.


Our learning is based around seven areas of learning and development, all are important and inter-connected.

These seven areas consist of:


Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Physical Development

Communication and Language



Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design

Reading in Reception


At Millfield we believe that reading is the single greatest joy that you can have and so texts feature heavily in everything that we do.


Children are encouraged to share a book every night. We endeavour to read with children as often as we can, whether this is hearing a child read, shared class reading, books used in literacy, the class story at the end of the day or even a trip down to our new library.


At Millfield, we don't teach children how to read, we create readers.


Books we have read this year in class:

To support your child reading at home here is a fabulous guide...


It is so important for your child to feel comfortable at school all day. Therefore could you please make sure they have a spare change of named clothes in school at all times. Their clothes will stay in their own box.
The children may get messy, muddy and wet as they always have access to outdoors!
Swimming is every Wednesday – please make sure you bring your swimming kit to school in the morning.


Could you please ensure your child’s name is in every item of clothing worn in school, as this will prevent belongings from getting lost.
