Welcome to Squirrels

In Squirrels class we have a play based Early Years curriculum which is child initiated. We have a free-flow indoor and outdoor classroom with extensive resources and space. Each half term we have a topic focus which is interwoven through all our lessons.  

  • Our topics are:
  • All about Me
  • Terrific tales
  • Amazing animals
  • Growing/come Outside
  • Ticket to ride
  • Fun at the Seaside

The Squirrels team are experienced practitioners, who incorporate child-led and adult directed activities throughout the day.

Each day the children will have a daily Little Wandle Letters and Sounds phonics lesson, an English focused activity and a Maths lesson. Three times a week the class split into groups and follow the Little Wandle reading programme.

Squirrels are lucky enough to spend one afternoon per week in the on-site forest all year round, enjoying bug hunting, den building and simple wood carving.

Squirrels class is a happy, engaging, creative and enriching environment where the children begin their journey to become lifelong learners.
