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 Beirne
  • R Hepworth – Mrs Wise and Miss Gill
  • R Kandinsky – Miss Baxter and Mrs Champelovier

We are lucky to be supported by our HLTA, Mrs Burrows.

Our P.E day is Friday morning. May we remind you to ensure that all your child’s kit is clearly labelled.

Our library visit day is Thursday morning.

Frosty walks

What a beautiful frosty week it has been! We took the children on a frosty walk around the school grounds on Monday morning to explore the effects the cold weather had on the environment around us. The children loved finding all the frosty leaves and flowers around the field and seeing how the tiny ice crystals melted in the sun and in their fingers. The children made some excellent scientific observations and recalled some of their prior learning from our Sparkle and Shine day. Well done mini Scientists!

They loved discovering that they could write and draw in the icy benches and making the frost disappear by melting the ice with their fingers!

They also had fun scooping the ice up and compacting it into mini snowballs!
