New Entrants Useful Information

We enjoy learning through play, both indoors and outdoors and it is in these different environments that the children explore and discover their immediate world.

Every day, your child will need to bring a water bottle, book bag and waterproof coat to school. Please bring wellies at the start of Term 1 to leave at school for our outdoor learning and play. 

Forest School

The children attend Forest School once a week which will help to develop confidence, independence and problem solving skills. We will provide all in one suits to keep the children warm and dry.


Once they are full time, the children will have weekly P.E sessions focusing on developing their core and co-ordination. This will also include Write Dance, a music and dance approach to support develop the skills needed for writing and Beam, an educational and movement programme, which aims to improve their gross motor skills and classroom concentration.

At the start of every morning, they will participate in Activate 5 (a movement - based programme) to enable them to be alert and ready to learn. They will also take part in Finger Gym activities and Dough Disco to develop their fine motor skills.

Home Learning Journals

Your child's learning journal will be sent home with a task to complete on a Friday. These tasks are often practical and aim to consolidate the week's learning. Please return the journals by Wednesday at the latest.
