Welcome to our class page!

The Early Years are a really important stage in your child's learning and development, and we are here to support this.

Please see the files section for a publication which parents may find useful in identifying developmental milestones, entitled, "What to Expect, When?"

Each half term (approximately 6 weeks) we plan a range of activities to help the children explore and answer 'Learning Challenge' questions. These are carefully structured throughout the Nursery and Reception classes so that what the children are doing build's on their prior learning and will prepare them for Key Stage One. Here are the Nursery Learning Challenge Questions:

  1. Who am I and who are you?
  2. What is a sound?
  3. Can you tell me a story?
  4. Where in the World?
  5. What grows?
  6. Can you save the planet?

Here are some other useful links to support your child's learning and development:

Many thanks,

Mrs Adie
