Thank you

During any warm weather spells. You may send your child into school with suncream and a sunhat.

Suncream will not be applied by staff but the children can apply it under staff supervision.



In Reception, much of the curriculum is delivered through focused and structured play. The teacher and assistants work together to set up activities arising from ongoing observations to further the physical, emotional and academic development of the children.

In Saplings Class we are always busy! Every half-term we learn a new topic and we enjoy learning about our topics through our classroom areas.

Here are examples of our Learning Plans:
