Dear Parents & Carers.

We are utterly inspired by The Curiosity Approach and we can see the incredible value of authentic resources. Allowing children to create their own stories and used to ignite imagination, curiosity, creativity communication and language in Early Years.

To fill our setting with an autumnal feel and allow children to discuss nature, animals & the changing season.

We support children to handle items carefully, understanding consequences and respect for items. It’s all part of their learning journey.

We are on the hunt for Ceramic, brass and wooden items. Wicker baskets, mug trees and curtain rings. Marble eggs and anything that sparks Curiosity in our young children.

Especially anything with a woodland or autumnal feel.

Do you have any items you can donate?

Thank you in advance.

Mrs Rawson

Lunch time

The children sit at the table to eat their lunch. It is a social time where children can communicate and interact with their friends. They learn about manners and talk about the different textures and tastes.

Talk time pictures (communication & language activity)

In the Early Year Foundation Stage communication is broken down into three area:

  • Listening and attention
  • Understanding
  • Speaking

Communication is at the heart of human interaction and we want to promote conversation both inside and outside the classroom. We want to give your child the tools they need to become good listeners, join in, anticipate events, build receptive and expressive language, express their ideas and begin using more complex sentences. Start by looking at and talking about the picture below with your child…….you’ll be surprised at what they know!


Philosophy for children is an approach to learning and teaching. Children are taught how to create their own philosophical questions. The teacher, as a facilitator supports the children on their own thinking, reasoning and questioning as well as the way the children speak to each other in the dialogue. P4C is intended to be a regular activity so that children develop their skills and understanding over time. P4C has an impact on children’s cognitive, social and emotional development. P4C is about getting the children to think and communicate well; to think for themselves. Use the picture below to think about the P4C question this half term.

Understand what is behind your children’s play and help them by observing patterns of behaviour or “schemas”.

Schemas are patterns of behaviour that appear through children’s play.

Schemas are an important part of children’s development and knowing about these play urges can help you understand why children are so determined to do things in a certain way. For more information you can watch this short video.


Talk 4 baking

This half term our talk 4 baking activity is biscuits. Talk 4 baking is based on talk for writing. It is strong and powerful because it is based on how children learn. It enables children to imitate the language they need for a particular topic. During our talk 4 baking activity the children put actions to words and this enables the children to actively remember the words in the sequence.

Forest school

Forest school promotes holistic development and gives the children the opportunity to risk take and self-regulate.

Children are able to investigate, test and maintain their curiosity in the natural world around them. They are given encouragement to direct their own learning through play.

Forest school promotes emotional growth as well as independence; it instils a deep respect and awareness for the natural world and reconnects them to their environment. Research proves that children are more likely to flourish when allowed to indulge in “risky play” outdoors unhinged by excessive adult supervision. Risky play means that children manage their own behaviours, follow their own interests and become more engaged in their own learning experiences. Children are also able to connect with the environment across the change of seasons through regular forest sessions.

Mark making

The skill of writing begins with mark making. As well as being able to write making marks can benefit a child physically and also help develop their imagination and creative skills.

Finger gym

Finger gym activities boost communication and language and builds a foundation for handwriting later on. It improves hand eye coordination, muscle development and enriches vocabulary.
