In the Foundation Stage and 2s Can we follow the Early Years curriculum. Through play, our children explore and develop learning experiences, which help them make sense of the world around them. They have the opportunity to think creatively alongside others as well as on their own. They communicate with others as they investigate and solve problems. We deliver opportunities for exploration of all 7 areas of learning through purposeful play, with a balance of adult-led, adult-initiated and child-initiated activities. This is supported by offering a range of real life experiences through educational visits and visitors in school.


October 2019

The Road Safety team have been to see us this week. We learnt how important it is to stay safe near and on the roads. We now know how to cross the road safely.

This week we have been learning about Halloween. We have enjoyed looking at pumpkins, making potions and using playdough to make spiders.

This week, we have had ‘Moving Words’ visit us in school. We enjoyed learning a new poem and dance.

This week we have been learning about Bonfire Night. We have enjoyed creating fireworks, making a bonfire and singing songs. We also learnt about how to keep same around a bonfire and fireworks.

We have started to think about Christmas and so we went on the minibus to visit Tong Garden Centre. Whilst we were there, we looked at the Christmas lights and decorations. Mrs Hall bought some baubles for her tree and we have started practising our Nativity.

Guidance for making up stories

Making up stories



Dear Parents and carers,
Please find below some important guidance to help your child/ren in this situation as keeping them safe is paramount to us.
New online resources 
·         Supporting children’s mental health - Harold’s Daily Diary  Harold the giraffe is posting daily Ideas for creating routines and the different things that children (supported by parents/carers) can do to keep happy and healthy – including looking after their emotional health. This is going down really well, particularly with younger children. One of our SCARF-using schools has even used it as the basis for a virtual literacy lesson.
·         Support for parents and carers   We’ve increased the amount of content on this new part of our website. This now includes sign-posting to online safety resources as well as ways of helping children cope with anxiety caused by COVID-19’s impact.
·         Staying Safe Online resources  A new online package of support for teachers to use themselves or to share with parents who are now at home with children. Includes:
1.    Practical advice and guidance about keeping children safe online
2.    Resources to teach children to be safe online – drawn from our own bCyberwise resources and those produced by CEOP (Child Exploitation Online Protection)
3.    Guidance on keeping children emotionally healthy – balancing time online and offline.



The White Rose Maths Hub in partnership with BBC Bitesize are uploading daily activities every week.
