Welcome to Albion Early Years
Introduction to Early Years
At Albion we aim to provide a challenging and enjoyable environment where staff support children’s learning and look for ways to extend their knowledge and interests. We use open ended questioning to promote active learning and critical thinking, increasing the ability of children to offer appropriate responses and extend their own learning.
A typical day will involve children listening to stories, singing and playing instruments, cooking, playing in the mud kitchen, caring for our chickens, building, painting, playing in the role play area, climbing, mark making and much, much more!
Come and take a look at our fantastic Nursery classrooms and some of the learning that takes place.
Our Reception classes are warm, stimulating, friendly and supportive environments that enable all children to develop and reach their own unique potential. It is a happy place where the children thrive in all areas of their learning and development. All children’s efforts and contributions are valued and celebrated and our classroom and learning environment clearly show this. We promote and encourage an ethos of respect, friendship, teamwork and kindness. The children love school and really want to be here!
A typical day will involve; whole class sessions in phonics, maths and literacy, singing, writing, climbing, exploring and discovering in our Forest School, creating mini masterpieces, reading, making friends, riding bikes and much, much more.

At Albion, outdoor learning has an equal value to indoor learning. It has a proven positive impact on children’s well-being and development. Outdoor learning gives children contact with the natural world and offers them experiences that are unique to outdoors, such as direct contact with the weather and the seasons. It also helps children to understand and respect nature, the environment and the interdependence of humans, animals, plants, and lifecycles.
All classes have access to an outdoor area shared by their year group partner class. After each whole class teaching session the doors are opened and children are free to go in and out as they please. Some of the typical activities they may choose from include; climbing, the sand pit, the mud kitchen, building, gardening, playing musical instruments, reading, mark making, role play and much, much more.
In Nursery and Reception all children will have Forest School sessions throughout the year in our on-site Forest School. Typical activities include:
- Sensory walks
- Shelter building
- Mini beast hunts
- Tree climbing
- Campfire cooking
- Nature art
- Games like Hide and Seek
- Puddle and mud jumping
Albion Primary School is also the home to eight beautiful chickens. The children from Nursery up to year 6 learn how to care for them, clean them, feed them, collect and sell their eggs. The children love going to see them and taking them treats.
