Welcome to Early Years at
St Swithun Wells








Hedgehogs Class

Mrs Cole, Mrs Lord

Mrs Gigg and Mrs Brady






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 encourage them to become independent learners who are challenging themselves. We aim them to develop the the skills and understanding that are a foundation for lifelong learning.

We will be:

  • Finding out and exploring
  • Learning to 'have a go' and keeping trying
  • Choosing ways to do things and making links in our learning
  • Creating and thinking critically
  • Challenging ourselves to' stretch' our learning


Make sure you log on to tapestry for all the latest news and ideas of things that you can do to help learning at home.
