This week's learning

The children have had a lovely few weeks settling into their new classes and exploring their new environments. Over the last few weeks the children have been completing a baseline assessment with their teacher. The teachers have also been getting to know the children and finding out about their interests.

Our webpage will be updated regularly with our current learning focus and things you can do at home to support your child.

Check back soon!

Meet Our Super Learner Side Kicks!

Throughout this first half term we will be introducing our Super Learner Side Kicks. These are different animals that demonstrate good learning behaviours for the children to learn from. The children already demonstrate so many of these Super Learner qualities and we will be celebrating these with them.
