Early Years at Tortworth

When children start school at Tortworth they join us in Wagtail Class, along with Year 1 and Year 2.  The older children are very welcoming and help the younger children to settle into school routines very quickly. 

We have a fantastic learning environment for the Early Years at Tortworth Primary School. There is an enclosed outdoor space off the classroom which allows free flow between indoors and outdoors. There are lots of opportunities for outdoor learning including a mud kitchen, ride-on toys, den making materials and planters for growing flowers and vegetables. Indoors there is space for adult led as well as child initiated learning. 

We take part in Forest School activities regularly in our Wild Woods area and we also have a Bark Area, Peace Garden and all-weather play area known as the MUGA. 


Stay and Play Afternoons

We are holding Stay and Play Afternoons during the year for children who will be starting school in September 2019. They will take place in Wagtail Class and you are welcome to come along with your child, even if you are still deciding about your choice of school.  Each session we will focus on a particular aspect of the learning environment. Our November session will focus on Creative Development. For more details contact the School Office.
