Children early years make a strong start to their school career.
Children in early years enjoy their learning and they are encouraged to be independent learners. The learning environment in early years is well organised and promotes independence.
Welcome to Monet and Van Gogh classes.

This week we will be celebrating Autumn and learning about what happens when it gets's to Autumn.
This week we launched our Autumn 2 topic 'Celebrations'. First day back we held a Diwali craft morning for the children to learn about how Diwali is celebrated and the story of Rama and Sita. The next few days were just as busy as we celebrated Bonfire Night with more crafts, bonfire displays, firework dances and poems. We have had a great start to our topic take a look below.
This week we focused on working as a team to build a den. We learnt how to fasten it to the fence and ground safely. Everyone had a go at using a mallet to hammer in the tent pegs. All the children were really please with their finished dens.
Our First Week at School
Take a look at the pictures below to see how much fun we have had exploring our new classrooms.
