Little Longwoods - Early Years World

We want to make sure that your little ones get the best start in life. This is why we created Little Longwoods Early Years World! Our learning environment, together with a high focused approach on English and mathematics provides our pupils with a second-to-none start at school. 

At Longwood we focus on providing a high quality curriculum. This includes formal learning through: 

  • High quality systematic phonics.
  • Plenty of opportunities for writing.
  • Daily mathematics.

In addition, we provide specialist teaching in PE (Physical Development) and art (to develop fine motor skills).

Communication and Language, along with building high quality opportunities to enhance Personal , Social and Emotional Development (PSED), is essential throughout daily learning experiences inside and outside the classroom. We provide children with planned opportunities and ongoing support in these areas.

Learning outside of the classroom (in our Early Years Garden) is also vital. In 2019 we heavily invested in outside learning. This included: 

Physical Development Area: Pull-Up Bars, Climbing Poles, Stepping Logs, Bowfell Climber, Swinging Log Traverse - this is to develop core strength and upper body strength to aid writing. We also have trikes and further aspects in our construction area.

Construction Area: Weighing scales, Construction Table, Skip, Pulley system within a stoned area.

Water Play: Water wall and damming play environment.

Performing Arts and Role Play Area: Stage, Wigwam, den making posts, giant playhouse (with walls, chalkboard and benches), Giant Mirror and outside seating.

All of this alongside high quality activities within activity stations to support learning within the classroom!
