Reception

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.

You will find our curriculum information further down the page!

Spanish Week

The children had a very exciting visit from Mrs Hsu this week to enrich our Spanish week! Mrs Hsu taught the children a Spanish welcome song and read them an action story in Spanish which they joined in with.

The children also got to explore some Spanish themed resources and learn a few words in Spanish.

They also really enjoyed trying the Spanish cuisine served up by the fantastic kitchen staff. Some of the foods they tried included: chicken and chorizo paella, Spanish tortillas and  patatas bravas.

Que tengas un buen fin de semana!  (Have a good weekend! ) 😊👍
