The Early Years is a large unit consisting of 29 reception children, 28 nursery children who attend either a morning or afternoon session and 16 two year olds. Children in reception are split into four ability groups for Read/Write Inc. Nursery children are split into groups for phonics and maths activities and other adult directed activities. We offer children a wide range of multi sensory activities which cater for individual learning styles. Our approach is a balance between play - child initiated and planned as well as teaching skills such as reading, writing and mathematics.
