Our Classes

Seedlings Class - Nursery & reception

Seedlings Class is made up of children from Nursery and Reception. The class teacher is Mrs Jones.

The Nursery and Reception children in Seedlings learn partly through whole group discussion, and small group practical activities. We follow the Early Years Curriculum and shape our curriculum based on the children's individual interests and needs. We recognise that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. Children learn in small groups working with adults and also through child-initiated activities inside and outside. Alongside these activities, children also participate in Forest Schools and PE sessions.
