Early Years Class - Dosbarth Blynyddoedd Cynnar

Our names are Mrs Sarah Arthur and Mrs Clare Dunlop and we are the Early Years teachers. Our Early Years department is a very vibrant and stimulating classroom where excellent teaching determines the success of the child’s learning and development.  Our class offers a wide repertoire of expertise and competence, exercising professional discretion in planning and directing the learning process for each and every child. We see children as strong, powerful, competent and active learners who need opportunities to make real choices and decisions supported and encouraged by adults.

The Early Years class is a wonderful facility with a number of discreet sections that are assigned to the different areas of learning within the Foundation Phase. These include an indoor sandpit, a cooking area, large construction and modelling areas as well as a large, open music area. Our extensive outdoor environment and grounds are used by the Early Years pupils all year round. The children have access to a range of playgrounds and outdoor settings, which contribute to providing a wealth of experiences. These include the ‘Pirate Ship Playground’ and woodland area, where the children can climb, role-play and use the tricycles on the marked track. Also, the ‘Nature Garden’ with a fantastic log circle and storytelling chair offer a great resource for the enjoyment of circle time games and activities that have a direct outdoor learning focus.  We work with our children to promote, instil and maintain a healthy attitude and lifestyle and of course, a love and enjoyment of physical activity.

All the Early Years staff believe that we can encourage children to become lifelong learners by providing a rich, broad, balanced and relevant curriculum and through working in genuine partnership with parents/ carers and the wider community.
