We have 5 classes with a teacher and a full time assistant.
- The day starts at 8.30 am and finishes at 3.00 pm
- Children attend a minimum of 5 mornings and 3 afternoons a week. On Wednesdays and Fridays, the children may go home at 1.00 pm after lunch. In the Summer Term the children are required to stay on Wednesday but still have the option of leaving at 1.00 pm on a Friday afternoon.
The Curriculum in Pre Reception is designed to build on the knowledge and skills the children learnt in Nursery. The mornings consist of block sessions of Literacy and Mathematics with the focus on a ‘hands on’ approach to learning. The afternoon topic work, which covers all the areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage, provides the opportunity for active and independent learning. Other curriculum subjects include PE, French and Music which are taken by our specialist teaching staff.
