We have a lovely area for learning where the children are able to access the classroom and outside area during child-initiated learning. We access the outside area during all weathers so please ensure that wellies and a waterproof coat is provided. 

We ask that you try and read a minimum of three times at home with your child and record this in their reading record diaries. If your child reads three times in a week, their name goes into our weekly reading raffle. 

We follow Development Matters, first of all focussing on the prime areas of development, before working on the specific areas and then the Early Learning Goals. Practical, fun and engaging task are planned for the children to access during their play and when working with an adult. 

We do a formal PE lesson once a week, this will be on a Tuesday. Children can come to school wearing their PE kits.

PE kits should consist of:

Blue/white Polo shirt

Black/blue shorts or leggings/jogging bottoms. 

Suitable trainers
