Twydall Primary School

Care, Courtesy, Commitment and
Consideration in our Community


At Twydall Primary School we believe that children:

  • should be supported to learn through their play, enjoying the process of discovery
  • should feel safe and cared for in their environment
  • should develop relationships with adults and children that are supportive, fun and joyful
  • should be allowed the time to immerse themselves in their play, learning, practising, rehearsing and applying new skills
  • can have a love for learning and taking risks

Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum

There are 7 areas of the curriculum:

Prime Areas:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language

Specific Areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design 


Focus on indoor and outdoor learning

  • Children need to move to develop their muscles and understanding of their bodies.
  • Children will have the opportunity to learn outside everyday.
  • Children can apply their learning in a more challenging and open environment.
  • We offer a mixture of "garden days", wheeled vehicle days ("bike days")
  • All weathers!-All children need to have a pair of wellies in school and appropriate coats.

How do we teach reading and writing?

We use a scheme called Read, Write, Inc. This will systematically teach the letter sounds (Phonics) to your child whilst teaching reading and writing as well. You can find out more here.
