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.

It's been a busy few weeks in Early Years! We have been learning about the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff.
The children were inspired to re-enact the story in our role play corners.
In Science we looked at the different kinds of bridges and experimented with different materials to build our own bridges.
We drew our own story maps and retold the story to our families at home.
We worked on adding 'wow' words (adjectives) to our writing to make it more exciting!
We even made our own Billy Goats out of clay, using tools to add fine details.
Next week we will be looking at innovating the story to make our own tales. Watch this space!
