Wren Chicks Class - Pre-school







 Spring Term 2022 

Hello and welcome to Wren Chicks Class.  Our teachers are Mrs Pickess and Miss Hunt and our class TAs are Mrs Edhouse, Mrs Moss, Mrs Knight and Mrs Coduri Dunn.

In our class we learn through play following the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. Underpinning all our learning sit the Characteristics of Effective Learning: Playing and Exploring, Active Learning and Creating and Thinking Critically. With these at our foundation we aim towards becoming effective independent learners.  

Our learning journey begins with a focus on the Prime Areas of development: Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. As we develop and our journey progresses, greater emphasis is put on the Specific Areas of learning: Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding The World and Expressive Arts and Design. During our time in Wren Class we move from taking our first teetering, brave steps into school, towards becoming confident learners ready to move onward into our Reception Year.
