EYFS ~ Understanding of the World (People and communities' ~ 22-36months ~ 'Learns that they have similarities and differences that connect them to, and distinguish them from, others'.

Home Challenge

Talk is crucial to effective learning not just in the early years but throughout children's education. A 'talk-rich' environment is one where children's level of talk and vocabulary are accurately assessed and opportunities are created for further development and enhancement both indoors and out. Staff in Nursery are dedicated to help all children become effective talkers and Anita is attending a Language for Learning course which will provide a multitude of practical strategies to support children and staff. Parents can also help their children at home by turning off background noise, use short and simple sentences, look at them when they are talking to you and wait for them to finish talking before you speak.

Sir David Attenborough

(Environmental focus)

was born on the 8th of May, 1926. 

He is 94 years of age and grew up in Leicester, England.


 David Attenborough is well known for his award-winning television programs on anthropology and natural history, most notably the Life series: Life on Earth (1979), The Living Planet (1984)


He was knighted 'Sir David Attenborough' in 1985.


2015 - saving the world - Sir David said he didn't start making programs with conservation in mind - he simply enjoyed observing the natural world. But as time passed he is tackling more environmental issues. 


Sir David Attenborough became aware that the animals and habitats he was filming were under threat. He's authored documentaries that overtly tackle environmental issues but prefers a subtler approach, showcasing the natural world in the hope we might be inspired to preserve it. 



Over the next year, we will be learning about our environmental footprint by saving water, recycling, protecting animal habits, and healthy eating. 




We consider ourselves partners in your child's learning.

At Harvington C.E. First school we have an open door policy which means we are always ready to help and discuss anything concerning your child's welfare and education.
