Squirrel Class Information

Squirrels Class – EYFS & KS1


The children in Squirrels follow a bespoke Early Learning Curriculum which supports the learning and development of children in their early years.


It provides intentional, meaningful and purposeful activities which help the children move forward in their learning.


Underpinning everything is a focus on the development of speech, language and communication strategies, with thorough monitoring and assessment to plan next steps.
