Nursery and Reception
The teaching ethos in the Nursery and Reception classes is varied and practical. Children are encouraged to explore, question and enjoy their learning. Spacious classrooms offer a wide range of exciting learning areas including a dedicated story and role play corner, literacy and numeracy zones, an IT bay and areas for investigative and imaginative challenges.
The exciting outdoor learning environment has a large sandpit, an expansive grassy area and exciting adventure climbing apparatus. There is a hard surface for riding bikes, a playhouse and covered space for painting and water-based activities.
Each class is named after the wildlife and plants that can be found surrounding the School: the Nursery classes are called Rabbits and Squirrels and Reception classes are called Hedgehogs and Badgers.
Early Years teachers observe, nurture, extend and develop children in their first learning experiences. This enables teachers to prepare a detailed profile of each child which forms the basis of their future learning.
