There are three classes in the unit – Nursery, Rainbow and Sunshine Reception classes.
The key staff working in Early Years this year will be: Tracey (Assistant Head Teacher/Rainbow Reception Class Teacher), Steph (Sunshine Reception Class Teacher), Helen (Nursery Class Teacher), Kirsty, Jade and Sharon (Learning Support Assistants) with Timea, Matt (Nursery Teaching Assistants) and Lesley (Nursery Nurse).
We have activities both inside and outside that cover all of the areas of learning – Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Expressive Arts and Design. Some activities the children can explore independently, and others are focused tasks that require adult input. Each class has appropriately levelled focused adult tasks that the children complete during the course of the day.
We are looking forward to getting to know you and your child(ren) over the coming year. There is lots of learning, exploring and heaps of fun in Early Years and on our page we will show you what we have been learning, our fabulous trips and interesting visitors that have come to school as part of our amazing topics.
