In Early Years, we cultivate a love of learning for life. Our curriculum is planned to provide balanced and relevant experiences for each individual child. We are passionate about outdoor learning and problem solving. It is important that our children feel safe to be risk takers as they approach their learning challenges.
We are a free flow unit and so we are able to tackle our challenges in our preferred order, at the level we feel most comfortable. Our teachers encourage us to challenge ourselves once we have built confidence in the set tasks and so our learning is never done! Each week we have new 'Rainbow Challenges,' with activities which support our physical development, phonics, writing and mathematical skills. Our progress and work is recorded in a number of ways such as writing books, Our Learning Journeys scrap book and 'Tapestry', so our grown ups can keep updated on what we have been learning.
Early Years is extremely busy and fantastic fun. Keep up to date with us by following our blog.
The Early Years team is
- R Kelly – Mrs Wise and Mrs Gilkes/ Mrs Zafar
- R Hepworth – Mrs Spina and Miss Manns
- R Klee – Miss Williams and Mrs Kensett.
Our P.E day is Friday morning. May we remind you to ensure that all your child’s kit is clearly labelled.

This week in Maths the Early Years children were introduced to a mysterious machine!
It was in fact a Doubling Machine! We set to work finding out how it works.
"Doubling means the same again!"
The children had a lot of fun doubling gems, bears and Numicon.
For this weekend's homework, the children took home a Doubling Machine to double objects at home. We are looking forward to finding out what the children have doubled!
