Saplings (FS2)

Welcome to Saplings!

Our team of passionate Early Years professionals strive for excellence in the Early Years and this is reflected in our indoor and outdoor provision, pedagogy and ethos. 

Although Saplings share provision with the Acorns nursery class,  there is a also a more formal element to our teacher-led provision in preparation for Key Stage One.


Our big question is: Do all stories have happy endings?

We are currently exploring traditional tales, building on the work in Autumn Term on Nursery Rhymes. 

Traditional tales are an important part of the development of early reading as children learn to recite familiar stories and begin to understand the structure of tales with a beginning, middle and end.
