At Mary Bassett we believe that young children learn best through play, and when they are happy, secure and having fun. In Year R your child will learn to be a powerful and independent learner; ready and equipped to enjoy the challenges of all their future years in school and beyond. They will learn to work together and treat each other with respect, to read and write, to play with mathematical concepts, to explore the world they live in, to keep fit and healthy and become well co-ordinated and be able to express themselves creatively. We foster development in these skills and concepts through delivering a Thematic Approach. Each term children will engage in topics which draw upon their interests and fascinations.
