Welcome to Early Years


We love reading! We use Read, Write Inc to support our teaching of phonics and reading and our children are taught in small targeted groups each day. We assess children each half term so as we are always confident that their phonics learning meets their needs. Every child takes home a Read, Write Inc reading book each week to show off their wonderful reading skills, that they have worked so hard on all week, at home. 

Please explore our English curriculum pages to find out more about how we teach phonics within our school.


Autumn half term theme- 'All About Me'

This half term we will be exploring what makes us unique and special.  We will be getting to know our similarities and differences between ourselves and others.  We will be thinking about our families, pets and the homes that we live in. Below are the stories that we will be enjoying this half term.





In our RE lessons, we will explore and answer our key question: How can we find out about God’s Creation and give Him thanks?

Children will know the Creation story and retell this through role play, small world resources, sequencing and discussion. We will explore how we are part of God's creation and how it is our responsibility to care and look after it. 


Reading and Writing 

As well as following the phonics scheme Read Write Inc we will be doing lots of writing for purpose to help engage the children in their learning and promote a love of writing! The children will be writing lists, making cards, writing captions, making signs and learning to write their names. 



During our 'Number Time' the children will begin to build a firm foundation of the number system and order.  Children will learn to compare, order and count quantities.  We will also be working on subitising skills and recognising numerals to 5.
