Our Learning achievements!

Mark-making / Early WritingChildren develop their pencil control by creating different marks and patterns. They then progress to writing letter shapes before building up to words and simple sentences. We have a new addition of a Message Centre in our Reception classroom this year which is developing children's love for writing. 

Maths - We follow the White Rose Maths in Reception. Children progress their Maths skills at a pace which is suited to their needs. They also have time to develop their knowledge into a Mastery approach. 

RE - We follow a scheme of work called The Way, The Truth, The Life as part of the Leeds Diocese. There is a different topic taught each half-term. We also follow Catholic values and engage in circle time activities to develop our understanding of these. Children learn to say prayers and take part in a weekly collective worship.

CreativeChildren learn how to use different skills throughout the year and become independent in using these. We love to see what creations the children produce.

Outdoor LearningOutdoor learning is just as important as learning inside. We love our outdoor garden and we also have access to our school Nature area. We access outdoor learning at least twice a day. 

Forest Fridays - Every Friday we take part in Forest Fridays. The children go over to our Nature Area and we engage in Forest Schools activities delivered by Miss Peers. This is lots of fun!
