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 Van Gogh – Miss Paine and Mrs Gilkes
- R Hepworth – Mrs Wise and Miss Ellis
- R Kandinsky – Miss Baxter and Mrs Tortora

What a lovely first half term we have had with the children! They have settled into the unit so well and adapted really well to a new routine. The children have been busy playing and exploring, consolidating their understanding of early number, started their learning journey to reading and writing through phonics, enjoyed their first few PE lessons, and much more. They have really enjoyed exploring Autumn through the Leaf Man Book and have been excited to see if they could make their own Leaf Man.
This half term take your child on a walk and see if you can identify different trees by the leaves they have dropped.
