  • The day is a balance of adult led and child initiated activities.
  • Lessons are still play based and planned to meet the individual needs of children in the class. Children have access to indoor and outdoor provision in between each learning session.
  • Each child has reading books which they can take home every afternoon and return to school each morning. 
  • During child initiated play, Pre-School and Reception children are able to play and learn together, children from Year 1 occasional join us too.
  • We love to play and learn outdoors whatever the weather! Please have suitable clothes and shoes in school all year round.
  • We enjoy a daily snack of milk and fruit. Toast is also available and is to be ordered on a Monday for the week.
  • We have visitors who come into school to help us to learn and celebrate special occasions and we also visit interesting places.


Homework is sent out on a half-termly basis and consists of fun learning opportunities to be carried out at home in line with our current topic. Children are also encouraged to read at least three times per week and practice their key words. Mathletics is also available for home learning.
