Love of Learning
We plan engaging activities linked to exciting topics to capture the children’s imagination and support their development across the Early Years Foundation Stage. Children develop their learning and skills through exploratory play opportunities and by working in small, focused groups with adults. Please click on the curriculum map link to see information about our latest topic.
We have our weekly PE session on Thursday afternoon with Mr Hook. The children really look forward to their PE sessions and cannot wait to 'wow' Mr Hook with their amazing skills. PE will take place in the school hall for most of the year to develop children's understanding of space and movement. We will start going outside in the summer term to focus on developing skills ready for sports day! Please could PE kits be named as items of clothing can go missing very easily.
Reading books will be changed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday by a member of the Foundation Stage Team. Please could you write a comment and sign the book when you have read with your child. We will also send out home learning challenges every two weeks. These are fun activities to complete at home in order to support your child's understanding of key concepts being taught in school.

Curriculum Maps and Timetables
The Indoor Environment
The indoor environment provides stimulating learning opportunities for the children to experience activities which reflect the seven areas of learning. The children have access to a wide range of resources in both child initiated and adult led activities.
The Outdoor Environment
The outdoor environment mirrors the indoor learning environment within the Sunflower and Buttercup classes and it is used throughout our daily routine. Children will be able to access resources to develop the seven key areas of learning. Outdoor learning is key to developing children’s independence, physical development and to offer exploration and investigation opportunities.
