Each week our Reception children take home a fit bag. This includes a range of activities that you can enjoy at home.
Each day there are different opportunities for the children to be active. We encourage children to be outside as much as possible and ensure that there are a wide range of learning opportunities including a range of activities to develop fine and gross motor skills.
Mrs McCombie is our Forest School Teacher.
Forest School is a unique educational experience and process that offers children the opportunity to succeed and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland environment.
Children engage in motivating and achievable tasks and activities throughout the year and in almost all weathers. Children will work with tools, play, learn boundaries of behaviour; both physical and social, grow in confidence, self-esteem and motivation whilst developing an understanding of the natural world.
From Nursery onward the children have the opportunity to swim regularly in our school pool. They are taught by a qualified swimming instructor in small ability groups.
50 Things to do Before You’re Five
When all children start in our Early Years they take part in 50 things to do before you’re 5. These are engaging activities that you can do at home when out and about. these activities support children’s language and communication as well as their understanding of the world around them. The children also get an opportunity to take part in some of these activities at school, such as toasting marshmallows at Forest School.
