stream1In Class Stream we love to learn by being active and have a creative, enjoyable and supportive environment where the children learn to be independent. The Reception children follow the EYFS Curriculum (see Curriculum section) and the Year 1 children follow the National Curriculum.

We cover six topics a year on a two year rolling programme and aim to incorporate an interesting trip into each to bring our ‘learning to life’. We enjoy Forest School sessions each week either in the woods or the nature area.

Resilience Day

We had a great day and enjoyed all the activities.

We were ALL very brave and climbed the wall!

We built structures using Spaghetti and marshmallows-it was very tricky we all persevered!

We completed some puzzles without looking at a finished picture-we learnt to cooperate with each other.


We completed puzzle challenges.



Visit to Avoncroft Museum

We had a fantastic day out at Avoncroft Museum.

We made puppets and retold the story of The Three Little Pigs. We found out that the wolf didn’t want to eat the pigs but wanted to help them find out how strong their homes were!

We built houses out of straw, wood and sticks to find out which was the best material.

We had a go at ‘wattling’.

We learnt how bricks are made and made our own!

We looked around the site and found out about the buildings and how they were made in the past.


Our Visit to Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm

We went to Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm. We had a workshop about animal classification.

We had a close look at a ‘Butters’ the corn snake.

We stroked ‘Dolly’ and ‘Dilly’ the guinea pigs.

We held ‘Colin’ the hissing cockroach-he was very ticklish!

We walked around the zoo and saw tigers, lions, elephants, bears, camels, rhinos, giraffes, zebras and lots more. We had a great day!


Walk around the Village

We went for a walk around the village to find out about the area where we go to school.

We stopped for a drink at the village hall.

Then we posted our letters.
