We are a fantastic team.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and learn through child and adult led activities within the whole Foundation Stage environment , including both the Ladybirds and Owls classrooms, the Outside Learning area and the Discovery Zone and have PE on Thursday for terms,1,3 and 5 and Tuesday for terms 2, 4 and 6. Although PE kit needs to be in school all week as this may change and we may use it for other activities.

We go to the library once a week on a Monday afternoon for Terms, 1 ,3 and 5 and Friday afternoon for Terms 2, 4 and 6. We get to choose the book ourselves, so don’t be surprised at our choice.

We take part in Forest School on a Monday morning , on a  four week rota, with children from the Owls class, where we learn to use our communication and moving and handling skills.
