Welcome to Sunflower Class!
We are so excited to have started the school year. Sunflower Class are lucky enough to have had a brand-new classroom built which our children are enjoying exploring and playing in.
Our curriculum is based on 8 specific areas of learning. In Reception, the children continue to build on their home and Nursery experiences but start to focus on specific areas of learning including reading, writing and maths.
The children are taught phonics on a daily basis using our school program, Read Write Inc. The children love this and it has shown positive effects on reading and writing.
All learning in Early Years is done through play, where the children are set challenges which they need to complete by the end of the day, these challenges are differentiated to ensure all children are successful in their learning.
In Early Years, we spend lots of time learning outdoors in all sorts of weather and therefore are usually sporting wellington boots and rain-macs!
Look out for photographs and updates about what we have been up to.
