Curriculum Overview

Please find both the Reception and Year 1 curriculum overviews and expectations. 


At Leyland Methodist Schools, it is our intention to provide an Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum that is; AMBITIOUS- not only with teaching and learning standards, but also behaviour and most importantly, outcomes for our children.

Our unique and tailor made curriculum aims to provide a RICH, LANGUAGE-FILLED, SAFE and DIVERSE environment. One which encourages EVERY child in our care to achieve THEIR potential, regardless of their starting points in life.


We want our children to:


  • Learn to nurture others and to feel nurtured themselves
  • Get messy and enjoy doing it!
  • Develop a love of learning and to be able to articulate that in a range of ways
  • Ooze curiosity about the world around them
  • Develop a sense of excitement about their environment
  • Foster a sense of adventure which leads them to be eager about exploration
  • Develop their self awareness and esteem to FEEL LOVED and to LOVE OTHERS.

Year 1

We follow the Lancashire Creative Curriculum and adapt it to suit the learning needs of our children. Here is our curriculum map for the coming academic year. Years 1 and 2 will follow a two year rolling programme for all foundation subjects and Science/STEM. All topics are planned for in a way that provides clear progression, challenge and further support where appropriate.
