Welcome to Terms 1 and 2!


During our topic, we will be using the two books above to explore journeys and different methods of travel. Although we have planned the topic through the books, we will also tailor the planning and learning to the interests of the children. This may mean that our learning changes slightly from what is on the overview.

Welcome to Terms 3 and 4!

During this topic, we will answer the question, 'Why don't penguins need to fly?' We investigate this whilst learning about the Arctic and Antarctica. As the term progresses, we will find out about Robert Scott, a famous explorer. During the topic, our planning may change a little if the children show a real interest in another aspect.

Welcome to Terms 5 and 6!


During this topic, we will be learning about what it is like to be a child in different parts of the world.

Science- we will be learning about 'Plants' and 'Seasonal Changes'.

Our Class Showcase

A Curious Place.........Our Learning Environment

During the summer holidays, the staff were very busy changing the classroom and outside area completely. 

The Reception and Year 1 learning environments are no longer full of bright colours with very busy walls and ceilings. We have moved to a much more natural pallette which makes for a much calmer place to learn.

We have thought very carefully about every resource that we have included in the environment and that we have put on the walls. There is a purpose to everything and these have been explained to the children.

We have tried to rid the environment of as much plastic as we can. We have replaced toys and pretend items with real ones. The theory behind this is two fold:

  • the children are far more curious about objects if they are not clear about the purpose and if they can use the object for a variety of things. This makes play and learning more open-ended.
  • the children learn to look after things much more carefully if they are fragile, delicate and/ or special. For example, they are taught how to look after china cups rather than using plastic tea-sets.

Choosing Learning

Story Time

Hi there, I hope everyone is ok.

If you have any worries, it's a good idea to talk to your family, but you can also contact me

You can also use the ChildLine website, it has lots of useful information, videos to watch and ways you can get help.
