Our key structure of education is ‘Learning Through Play’.  You will receive a plan of our activities each half term.  Please read this


through carefully as there will be weeks when the children are asked to bring items in or outings where they might need suitable clothing.  If you have any special items at home which could be of interest to our theme, please bring them in or talk to the staff?  You might like to continue themes at home with extra activities or visits.

If you or your child has any particular interests please talk to your key worker as we like to incorporate the children’s interests in our curriculum planning.

Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage: “Each area of learning and development must be implemented

through planned, purposeful play and through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activity. Play is essential for children’s development, building their

confidence as they learn to explore, to think about problems, and relate to others. Children learn by leading their own play, and by taking part in play which is guided by adults. Practitioners must respond to each child’s emerging needs and interests, guiding their development through warm, positive interaction.”

Library and Home School Books

We offer a library system where children can take out books to read at home and bring back to swap at their leisure along with a Home School Book

Pre-school library

which provides the curriculum plan for every half a term, a Challenge Sheet set termly and your child's personal next steps.

We would love to see their response and you can use the pages in their Home School Book to stick in any photo's of them doing the challenges or they can draw pictures, or you could write their thoughts or comments down and bring it back in to show us.

You can put photographs or comments on your on-line Tapestry Learning Journal.
