Welcome to our exciting early years....
How do our children learn?
In our Early Years the children are the centre of what we do. We create planning with them in mind and also reach out for parents ideas through our 'top secret' letters.
We have recently introduced PLOD's (Possible Lines of Development) and we use these to plan fun an exciting experiences for the children whilst they are in continuous provision.
We also use statutory framework to guide our planning to ensure that the children are accessing fun and exciting lessons that are suited to their learning needs and styles.
Parents as Partners
This year we have introduced tapestry. Our parents are able to use this to access their child's learning journey from the comfort of their own home. The app is used to keep parents up to date with what their child has been learning and their next steps. Parents are also informed of upcoming events in school via the app too.
'Leaf a note'
We love to hear about those 'wow' moments that happen at home so we encourage our families to 'leaf' a note on our tree so they can share how proud they are of their child and their achievements.
We work very closely with our families and have introduced VIP weeks for children who we wish to observe closely that week. We ask parents to share what interests their child has and to identify any significant happenings at home.
