We are excited to welcome  you to Class 1.  We are looking forward to you enjoying your playing, exploring and learning with us.

We have some wonderful topic and themes lined up for the children! We know that starting school can be a difficult time but we aim to make sure that your child starts school and continues their learning in the best way possible. Whilst at school, your child will be learning how to read during their daily Literacy and Phonics sessions plus their Maths sessions will help them learn how to count as well as perform other calculations such as adding one more and taking one away from a number. 

At Monkton, a lot of our learning is done through themes. We try to link the skills that the children are learning to the theme as often as possible to ensure the children's learning is meaningful and has purpose.

Take a look below at the wonderfully inspiring themes that we will be using as our vehicle to drive the EYFS curriculum forwards.
