Year R is the start of every child’s journey through school life.  Our Year R classes are Butterflies, Honeybees, Dragonflies & Ladybirds.  These children are the youngest in our school!

 

Year R continue to work within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum.  They build upon their skills and knowledge from nurseries and preschools extending their understanding of key concepts.

 

 

Our topic this term is

‘Dinosaur Roar!’

We will be writing some facts about our class dinosaur and learning how to look after it.
