At Coley Primary School we believe it is important that during the foundation years children have the opportunity to flourish in a language rich and multi-sensory environment.


The children have daily teaching inputs in groups and as a whole class. There are opportunities throughout the day for children to free-flow between the inside and outdoor areas. Both provide different areas of learning where the children can practice the skills they have been taught. There are sand and water trays, construction areas, reading, writing and maths areas as well as role play areas such as the home corner. The children’s skills and independence greatly develop as they are encouraged to follow their own lines of enquiry.


Throughout the year we cover exciting topics such as space, dinosaurs, pirates and wild animals. We also delve into a wide range of classic and modern children’s literature including; The Little Red Hen, Owl Babies, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, How to be a Lion and Beegu.


We offer the children a range of real life experiences through school visits such as the Space Dome, trips to the local park and the opportunity to look after chicks and caterpillars.
