Today the children in Unit 1 made an incredible discovery...
After our PE lesson this afternoon, Mr Cornish came to find us with some exciting news. He told us that he had seen a flash of light and a loud bang from his office and needed us to go with him to investigate what is was. When we got to the Forest School area, we couldn't believe our eyes! We saw...
We then spent some time thinking about who might have come out of the spaceship and what they might look like. We hope very much that whoever has come to visit us in a spaceship is friendly!

About our unit
In our Unit all our classes work very closely together and the teaching team plan together which ensures consistency and allows every child to receive the same opportunities. All the curriculum subjects will be either be taught in year groups with a teacher from the unit or as a class with your child’s teacher. The daily phonics sessions will be taught in ability groups as our results show this to be the most effective method to ensure all the children’s needs are met.
We always have a fantastic, fun and creative curriculum planned for the children and next year will be no different! Every half term we base our learning around an exciting and engaging book. We purposefully do not give you the name of the books as we do not want to spoil our topics for the children. The book title is usually not revealed to the children until the second or third week, as often our work will rely on the children predicting and using their imagination. After the big reveal the book title will be put on the website. This new approach to delivering the curriculum was introduced this year and proved very successful.
