Welcome to the Class Page for the Owl Class!

This term we have combined our Little Owls Nursery Provision with their Reception friends in The Owl Class to make an Early Years Bubble! The staff team have lots of experience and enthusiasm and are enjoying working together as an Early Years Unit.

We currently have spaces for 3, 4 and 5 year olds. If you are interested in joining our exciting class, then please contact the school office and we would be happy to give you further information, and can offer you a virtual tour with Mr Goodwin, our Principal and our Early Years Teacher, Mrs Tomlinson.

Summer Term

We are very excited to be welcoming back Mrs Crook to our Early Years Team. Mrs Crook will be back working with the children in our class when we resume school after the Easter holidays. Welcome back Mrs Crook!!

For the first half of the new Summer Term the Owl Class is exploring the topic of Superheroes. We will be using quality texts such as Superworm, Supertato and Newspaper Boy and Origami Girl as we learn about Superheroes and investigate what makes a good hero and design a hero of our very own. We have planned lots of fun activities which we will share with you on our school Facebook platform.

After the Whit half term we will join the rest of the school in exploring the topic 'Wondergarden'. We will do this by looking at 'Castles' and the country of England. We will use a variety of different books including The Princess and the Dragon, Zog and The Kiss that Missed.

You can find the topic plan at the bottom of the page!

This page will continue to be updated over the coming weeks so keep checking back and keep your eye on Facebook for up to date photos of your child's learning!

Early Years Foundation Stage

The Early Years Foundation Stage is a distinct key stage which extends from birth to 5 years old; in our class this pertains to Nursery age children to the end of the Reception year. From September 2020 we are an Early Adopter of the new Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) ahead of it becoming statutory in 2021.

The Learning and Development principle is subdivided into seven areas of learning, the Prime areas are: Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Communication & Language; Physical with the remaining specific areas of Mathematics, Literacy, Understanding the World; Expressive Art

Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Revised Early Learning Goals



Your child will always have a private reading book of their choosing to take home with them each evening.  Reading this should be an enjoyable pastime for them to do both individually, and together with you.  When you listen to them read please take time to write a comment in their reading record so that we can encourage them in their progression together.

PE kits

This children in the Early Years bubble should come to school wearing their PE kit on a Monday and Tuesday. PE will be taught by Mr Friel on a Tuesday from the Spring term.

Wet Weather Clothing

We have a beautiful outside area and want to be able to enjoy it in all weathers. We request that you provide your child with wet weather clothing, eg an all in one suit as well as  a pair of wellington boots, that they may leave in school.


To follow the school's Risk Assessment to keep children safe, we need to have a flow of fresh air in our class. This means that we have some windows and an external door open and it can be chilly at times. We have rearranged our furniture so that tables are next to heaters and to mitigate against children being cold but PLEASE make sure that children are sent to school in layers to keep them warm that they can remove if they are too hot.

Thank you, Mrs Tomlinson

"Any learning a child encounters in school always has a previous history….Learning and development are interrelated from the child’s very first day of life.” ( Vygotsky,1978)

“Properly organized instruction will result in the child’s intellectual development, will bring into being an entire series of such developmental processes which were not at all possible without instruction.” (Vygotsky,1990)
