Our Curriculum

Our Ambitious Curriculum

INTENT          IMPLEMENTATION          IMPACT

At Harrington Nursery School our curriculum acknowledges;

“I come not with my own strengths but bring with me the gifts, talents and strengths of my family, tribe and ancestors.” (Te Whariki:12)

Our intent is to build on children's experiences enabling Every Child to Succeed.

Language and Communication and Reading is at the heart of our curriculum. Our ambition is for all children to become effective and skillful communicators, developing ways to express themselves based on their own ideas and experiences and to acquire a love of reading.

At Harrington Nursery School our curriculum truly reflects our vision for learning and is carefully planned to offer rich, meaningful and joyful experiences for all children. At Harrington, our intention is for all children to learn through a mix of dynamic, hands on learning experiences supported by highly skilled and caring adults. The curriculum is delivered through the many experiences provided, the resources and the interactions that are built into play and the occasions of ‘direct teaching’ throughout the day, everyday. The learning environment is linked to how and what children learn and is valued as a ‘teacher’!

Outdoor Learning 

We have established an extensive outdoor learning environment.

We aim to:

  • encourage an environmentally friendly attitude and a love of the natural world.
  • nurture and respect the world in which we live.
  • encourage a curious and investigative mind. 

At Harrington Nursery School we are dedicated to outdoor learning. 

 

Brave - Risk Taker

Unstoppable - Perseverance

Supportive - Team Player

Happy and Healthy

 

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)

 

At Harrington Nursery School we recognise that PSHE is an important part of our curriculum as it underpins development, builds capacity for learning and equips children for life. 

 

Our curriculum focuses on the following key areas:

 

Understanding Feelings

Achieving Goals

Making Relationships

Staying Healthy

Celebrating Differences

 

This approach enables children to develop the qualities and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, families members and members of society.
