Our Learning Journey

Topic in the Early Years

This half-term in the unit, we have looked at three different Topics; on return from the half-term break we focused on Bonfire night and Firework Safety. The following week we observed the national time of Remembrance by creating some stunning artwork. Finally, we celebrated Anti-Bullying week with the theme of 'Reach Out'; talking about our friends and feelings. We all wore odd socks on Friday 18th November.


Our main Topic this half-term has been focused on the season of Autumn. The children have enjoyed exploring natural resources and looking for signs of Autumn in our local environment. The topic has been reflected throughout our curriculum.

Harvest and the Little Red Hen

In Early Years we have been looking at the story of the Little Red Hen. We made bread and shared it at snack. We also looked at the festival of Harvest, explored fruit and vegetables in Nursery and attended a special assembly with Reverend Toby. 

We were thankful for all the wonderful gifts brought in for our local Food banks.

Fun in the Sun


Here's a snapshot of the last weeks of our summer term. We've enjoyed the Commonwealth Games, Fun Day and the Teddy Bears Picnic

Summer Learning

 This term in our Topic, the children have been learning about the Human body, we drew around a child and then using life-size bones and organs we placed them in the correct place. The children wrote labels for them also. 

Our story has been Handa's Surprise by Eileen Browne; the children have enjoyed learning about the animals and fruit from the story. We had lots of fruit to taste, this was great fun. We linked the story of Handa to World Music Day; exploring music from Africa and in particular Kenya. The children had fantastic fun using the drums to accompany the music.

We have enjoyed spending time on the field using the equipment.
