Happy Half Term. Have fun with friends and families. See you all safely back to school on Monday 3rd June 2019.


EYFS at St Columb Major Academy

The Early Years classrooms have been redecorated and refurnished with amazing resources and furniture from Community Play. The environment now has a calm and natural feel with wooden tables and chairs, furniture and hessian display boards. This allows children to play and work in an environment that is less distracting and hectic, supporting their focus and learning while allowing their work on the walls to be the centre of attention.

The two classrooms are joined with a sliding partition which we open during continous provision. The children are able to flow between the two classrooms and outdoors during their own learning time.

At St Columb Major Academy, the children learn mainly though child initiated play. The experienced Early Years adults teach the children and move learning forward through the children’s self-chosen play. We also teach the children in small focused groups and whole class taught lessons. This enables us to teach children new concepts and skills for them to practice and apply within their play.
