Curriculum for Excellence
In the Bumblebee (Pre-school) Room your child will have the opportunity to experience a range of activities which meet all eight areas of the curriculum. Your child will be introduced to early reading, writing, maths and science skills. These activities are delivered in a fun, relaxed manner allowing all children to learn naturally through play. Each child is encouraged to learn at their own pace within their own capabilities.
Pre-school Room Activities
The children in the Pre-school Room can participate in all the activities mentioned previously for the under 3’s although these activities are more structured in the Pre-school Room and offered at a level suited to their age.
The Curriculum for Excellence (3 to 18 Years) was introduced within a strong partnership between the Scottish Government, Learning and Teaching Scotland, Scottish Qualifications Authority and HM Inspectorate of Education to ensure pre-school children’s developmental needs are met. The emphasis is on learning through quality play experiences in a relaxed atmosphere. There are eight areas of the curriculum:
- Health and Wellbeing
- Language and Literacy
- Mathematics and Numeracy
- Expressive Arts
- Religious and Moral Education
- Social Studies
The Curriculum for Excellence aims to:
- Focus playroom practice upon the child and around the four capacities of education:
– successful learners
– confident individuals
– responsible citizens
– effective contributors
- Encourage more learning through experiences
- Create a single framework for the curriculum and assessment of children and young people aged 3 to 18 years.
