The curriculum here at Albany Infant and Nursery School is designed to ensure that your child finds learning irresistible. We offer an exciting, engaging, broad and balanced curriculum which ensures that all children are able to acquire a wide range of knowledge and skills and take part in many different experiences. Underpinning our curriculum is our commitment to ensuring that every child acquires the basic skills necessary to become a successful learner while also developing a love of reading. Within this, we ensure that our children are exposed to a range of opportunities which support their social, moral, spirtual and cultural development.
All children are taught through engaging half termly topics which revolve around a big question. Each week, smaller questions are explored to help find the answer to the overarching big question. This approach spans the whole curriculum but ensures that the basics of reading, writing and mathematics are acquired and applied in different contexts.
