We love learning outdoors. We are currently developing our outdoor space. We enjoy exploring and using the mud kitchen as well as water, sand and large construction. We have a fantastic Wild Area on the school grounds. We visit this whenever we can. We have an outdoor learning session every Thursday where we enjoy climbing trees, hunting for bugs, creating pieces of outdoor artwork, building fires and making dens. 
We have been learning about nocturnal animals as part of our topic "what happens when I fall asleep?". Mark's Ark visited us with some unusual nocturnal animals and animals that hunt at night. We learnt how they use their different senses to hunt their prey or escape predators. 
Starting school in September 2020
EYFS 2020-2021
This is the section of the website for information for those families whose children are due to join us from the Autumn term 2020.
At the time of writing (July 2020), we are are planning to open on 7th September and offer a part-time timetable for the first week (until 11th September).
Please keep your eyes on this section of the website, your e-mails and the 'MSTeams' app which we've given you information about, as this is how we will update you.
Over the past weeks, the teachers and support staff have been in touch for a virtual home visit, organised through Teams.  
The team has enjoyed meeting you and your children, and are looking forward to seeing you all soon.
We have uploaded two really useful documents to the Teams page.
In the meantime, if you have any questions, please get in touch.
Best wishes
Mark Clutsom (Headteacher)

Children in our Reception classes follow the Early Years curriculum, using Development Matters to ensure that all children are supported and challenged to achieve their full potential and learn in an engaging and child initiated way. Details can be found in the PDF 'Development Matters'.

You can find out how your child is progressing by logging onto our Tapestry site. You will have been given log in details by your class teacher. On this site we detail significant learning. It’s great when parents upload photographs or even short films of their children’s achievements at home for us to see. Together we get a good picture of how your child is developing.

Our Topic Shared Learning tasks will let you know how you can support your child in their learning. We enjoy looking at what the children have been talking about and making at home. Have a look at the Crinnis and Polmear topic news letters. These are sent out half termly. 

Please contribute as frequently as possible as this give us a fuller picture of your child’s achievements.
