The Early years… a sneak peak

“Pupils across the school exhibit notably strong study skills. Children in the EYFS were very observant of the features of their letter formation and sentence writing, and able to identify what they were doing well and what they need to work on. Several children correctly identified that they needed to include ‘speech marks’ and used the term ‘adjective’ accurately and with understanding.”

“Pupils are extremely supportive of each other during discussions which form a major element of teaching across the school. For example, EYFS children demonstrated much verbal appreciation of and interest in each other’s writing”

“In EYFS, Reception children act as ‘buddies’ to nursery children, read with them, support them and help them in artistic and mathematical activities and show them how to do practical things such as put books on the shelf”

“Pupils show that they are clearly used to engaging in thoughtful discussions in a supportive environment where all are encouraged to contribute as part of their lessons.”
