Welcome to

St. Martin's Early Years Unit!




A huge hello from Mrs Smith and Miss Moss!​​​​​​​


Keep up to date with your child's class teacher by using your child's Class Dojo account. 

Phonics and Reading

In the Early Years Unit we use the Active Learn Bug Club reading scheme.

The books are fully decodable for early readers.

Phonics is fun and we love to learn!

We are currently using the Letters and Sounds phonics scheme.


Reading is very important to us and we read at every opportunity.

Children take part in daily phonics sessions and regular guided reading sessions as well as one to one reading sessions.


This year we are taking part in an exciting maths project with the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Maths.

We use lots of visual representations of numbers and look forward to sharing the project with you at home.

Planning 2021-2022

Please note that this planning uses the new EYFS and is a working document that will be added to throughout the year.

St. Martin's EYFS Long term planning document - 2021 Version 1

Autumn 1 Planning

During the first few weeks children will settle into their new classroom and routines. 

Children will access core provision inside and outside and begin to access the provision as detailed in the long term plan.

Base line assessments will take place.

Once starting points have been identified class teachers will work together to write a medium term plan for the remainder of the term.

This will then be uploaded to this webpage.
