Welcome to the Cygnets' Class Page


In our first term at school we offer a full range of activities in the Early Years setting both inside and outside. During our second term we extend children's learning with more in depth activities to enable children to progress to a higher level of understanding.  By the third term we will be preparing children for the transition to Year 1 with increased expectations of outcomes during individual, small and large group activities. 


Please have a look at our topic overviews to gain a better understanding of the Early Years curriculum planned for Cygnets.


The Cygnets team: Mrs Lake - Class teacher, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.

                                Mrs Whitton - Class teacher, Fridays.

                                Mrs Maynard - Fulltime Teaching Assistant.



Children need to have a pair of named welly boots at school - these are stored on the welly rack outside Cygnets.  We are teaching the children how to store their wellies upside down to keep out the rain.  Please encourage your child to check occasionally to make sure their wellies are safely stored. 


Forest School sessions are planned throughout the year.  This is often topic based but also incorporates a big chunk of Forest School skills including tool work and time for Child Initiated learning.


Celebration assemblies are on a Thursday morning at 9:05 until approximately 9:30am. Individual invites will be sent out for 'Good Work' or Birthdays the week before.
