'Loving learning, learning to love... A small school, part of God's big family.'



Welcome to Diamond Class!

It's our first year of being fully fledged school pupils and we know the year will not disappoint.

Following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, our teacher, Miss Carroll and teaching assistant, Mrs Parfitt, will be providing us with lots of great learning opportunities across the seven areas of learning. Some of our activities will be adult led whilst others will be child initiated. We will be learning both in our classroom and making use of our very own outside area.

Our reception year is a really special time because it sets the foundation for all of the future learning that we will encounter. One of our greatest achievements this year will be through our phonics learning. Using our phonics scheme, Little Wandle, we will be taught the first phases and unlock the world of reading. Additionally, it will support us in writing letters and spell simple words.

We will become familiar with our school family and our Year 6 buddies will guide us along the way, helping us to practice routines and share our special achievements.
