Welcome to Pre-School
We are excited for another fun-filled term of learning and exploration in Pre-School. We will continue to strive to make your child’s first experience in education special, continuing to develop their relationship with their Teacher and Learning Support Assistants, who will support them and ensure that their emotional and academic needs are met daily. Our aim is for your children to become confident learners and to carry their love of learning throughout their lives.
Meet the team:
Mrs Whitehead – Class Teacher
Mrs Bradshaw – Learning Support Assistant
Miss Davies – Learning Support Assistant
Miss Snelson – Learning Support Assistant
The curriculum this term will be inspired by our Spring Bookshelf filled with exciting, high-quality texts. Our Spring term theme is ‘Growth’, which we will base the children’s learning opportunities around. As our school year progresses, we will encourage the growth of new skills, resilience and understanding as part of the children’s development. We will also be looking at new life during Springtime, in both animals and plants.
