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.

We had an exciting morning learning to swim-we all tried really hard and listened carefully. It was fantastic-we’re looking forward to next week!

Visit to Leaf Garden Centre

We walked to Leaf Garden Centre  and Jonathan showed us how to plant tomatoes and flowers. We learned about what plants need to grow and saw lots of different plants that they sold. Jonathan brought the plants to school for us to look after.

We really enjoyed our time there.

Thank you for letting us visit.
