Class story:


Class overview:

In Puffins class we learn through immersive sensory play using a child led approach. We love to follow our interests and get messy! We explore the 7 areas of learning which are:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • PSED
  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding of the world
  • Expressive arts and design

We learn and explore both our indoor and outdoor areas whatever the weather. In Puffins class we support total communication and use our voices, pictures, symbols and signs to communicate.

Learning together:

Learning Together Spring 2 

Outdoor learning:

School will have a continued focus on ‘Outside Learning in all Weathers’ this year, with this in mind if possible please ensure that on each day your child has a suitable coat for the weather conditions.

Could you please send in a bottle of sun cream to keep in school and a hat for your child as we use the outdoors each day and the weather will probably be getting warmer soon.

General notices:

Social money for the term is £6, this is for snack and learning experiences.

Please send in a spare change of clothes in case your child has an accident at school, as well as any nappies or pull ups they may need. We will let you know when we run out.

Please can you send wellies in and a water proof as we will be doing outdoor learning most days.
