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.

Blackberry Picking

Year One had fun picking blackberries from the hedge in the school field. We then practiced our cooking skills by chopping apples and making a crumble topping. We shred the crumble with the Reception children-IT WAS YUMMY!

Village Walk

We went for a walk around the village to find out about where we live. We followed a map so we didn’t get lost!. We especially liked seeing the cows in the field. We learnt our address and found the postbox so we could post a letter home.

Visit to We the Curious

Class Stream and River went to ‘We the Curious’ in Bristol to find out about different materials. We participated in a workshop to explore which material was best for building a house.

  What happened to the paper when it got wet?

What happened to the brick and wood when the flame was lit?

We built a wall and overlapped the bricks to make it stronger.

We had fun exploring and experimenting with all the activities in the museum. Which was your favourite activity?
