  • We regulary use MARV Me to praise your child and send key messages so please check daily. If you need help logging onto this please ask.  Logins have been sent home.

How we will teach your child


We teach in a variety of ways, making sure it is the way that works best for your child.


Your child will learn with the whole class (normally on the carpet), in a small group and individually, depending on the lesson, the activity and child.


During our Rainbow Time (child initiated time) the adults in the classroom will observe, add other resources to the play, question and have discussions with your child so that we have a clear picture of their level of understanding to enable us to forward their learning.  Our assessments are made during this time, as it is during play that children really demonstrate their understanding.
