At Rokesly Infant and Nursery School we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum in Reception and Nursery classes, and the Primary National Curriculum in all a subject areas in Key Stage 1 classes.
We regularly review our curriculum to ensure that National Curriculum subjects are effectively covered. We go beyond the National Curriculum at Rokesly. We work to develop your child’s knowledge and understanding, but also develop their learning and life skills. We work to ensure our subject lessons are creative and engaging for all, taking advantage of the exciting opportunities offered both in and out of the classroom. We work hard to ensure our teaching reflects the diversity of our community and the interests of our children.
Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences before the age of five have a major impact on their future life chances. At Rokesly we recognize that every child deserves the best possible start in life and we provide the rich learning environment, opportunities and support that enables them to fulfil their potential.
Reception Year Curriculum maps
Our topics are broad in order to cover the EYFS curriculum for Reception. We follow the seasons and use themes that are close to childrens’ excperiences and understanding. Focus within each topic will change depending on childrens’ interests and needs. Use the links to preview the current year group medium term plans:

At Rokesly we organise our teaching of subject knowledge into themes. We use the Primary National Curriculum as our benchmark to sequence a progression of skills while also making links between different subjects. The content we teach at Rokesly creates readiness for your child’s future learning.

Festivals and Special assemblies
Throughout the school year at Rokesly Infants we regularly talk about and celebrate cultural festivals and those of the major faiths. As well as our work in class in the RE curriculum, we have special assemblies led by staff or parent volunteers to tell stories, show artefacts and talk about the traditions of these celebrations with the children.
