We are an Early Adopter School for the new EYFS which comes into force in September 2021

Phonics and Reading

We follow the DfE Letters and Sounds scheme and Jolly Phonics. The children come home with letter cards and the matching actions each week to practise. Once the children progress to word building, appropriate activities are sent home. We encourage our children to be heard reading at home as much as possible.

Physical Education

Physical Development is an important part of our curriculum. We use the school hall for large apparatus on a Tuesday afternoon. We suggest that children come into school in their PE kits on this day.

Outdoor Learning and Forest School

We are very fortunate to be located in the beautiful village of Durweston, surrounded by woodland and fields. We take full advantage of our location, and take our learning outside when we can in all weathers. We suggest that all of our children have their wellingtons and coats in school at all times to enable this.
