Throughout your child's first year at St Swithun Wells we want them to be happy, feel safe and secure and develop good relationships with adults and children. We will provide opportunities for children to develop effective learning skills.

  • Finding out and exploring
  • Being willing to 'have a go' and keeping trying
  • Choosing ways to do things and making links in their learning
  • Creating and thinking critically


We are always available to answer any questions.  For quick questions please feel free to catch us at the class door.  For anything else, please make an appointment for a mutually convenient time.


Our Summer topic is...


Ready, Steady, Grow.


We will be learning about life cycles, specifically the life cycles of frogs, beans & sunflowers.

Some books we will be reading are...

It would be very helpful if you could send in any seeds or soil you could spare as we cant grow things without this.



Please have a look at the Curriculum leaflet for Summer 2019 below and let us know if you have any questions - we are always happy to help in any way we can.

Thank you.
