Hello and welcome to the Explorers Unit at our school!

We have two bases called Giraffe and Zebra Base and a great outdoor space. We can use all of these areas throughout the day. This really helps us with our learning as we get to explore a range of activities that are based around our interests.

The grown-ups work in all of the areas which is great because it means that we get to spend time with all of them.

The Foundation Stage teachers are Miss Beth Holmes (Zebra Base)  Mrs Lisa Warren and Ms Lucy Fletcher.(Giraffe Base.)

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Lisa Pearce, Mrs Tracey Laraway and  Mrs Jo Beresford.

You will also meet Mrs Bettesworth and Mrs Woodhams on a Friday afternoon.

PE / Forest Skills day is on a Wednesday.

We have lots of different things that we need to learn about. We learn phonics to help us to become amazing readers and writers using a Read, Write Inc. scheme. Parents and carers you will learn more about this during our workshop sessions.  Our teachers are always there at the end of the day if you have any queries.

When we learn mathematics skills we have lots of fun exploring different objects, learning new vocabulary and finding ways to record. Again, our teachers will run a workshop to help parents and carers to understand the way we learn.

We have lots of exciting new themes this year and you can find out more by clicking on the curriculm tab. We have also planned some days for grown-ups to come and join us for some fun activities and to experience our amazing time at school.
