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!

Our First Week at Bridgewater - Week B

The new Reception children in Week B have made a fantastic start at Bridgewater Primary. They have settled in really well and are starting to familiarise themselves with our school environment, routines and expectations. 

The children have been enjoying eating their lunch in the hall each day. 





The children have started learning to read and write the words ‘sat’, ‘mat’, ‘sit’ and ‘at’ in our daily phonics lessons. It would be great if you could encourage your children to read and write these words at home as well.

They have been to the library to borrow their first book. You can share these at home over the next week. Please make sure they return to book bags after each time you read them so they are in school each day for when we need them. We will change their library books on a Friday.

We have also sung lots of songs together, done lots of counting and number play and have all been busy in all our wonderful learning areas.  


Please make sure to look on Seesaw for the children’s individual learning moments. 


We are all looking forward to having all the children in together on Monday!
