A place where children develop a relationship between themselves and the natural world. Here they foster resilience, confidence, independence, creativity and problem solving through planned activities which offer the children the opportunity to take managed risks appropriate to the environment and themselves. Throughout the year, parents and carers are invited to join a session, which reinforces the positive experience for the children.
Every year we read a book related to a topic we are covering and invite the author in to do a special reading. The visits often create a lasting impression on the children as it connects their learning in the classroom with the wider world. This in turn generates an enthusiasm for reading, motivating those who are more reluctant as well as improving the children’s writing confidence.
Trips and Experiences
Throughout the year, several trips and experiences are planned into the curriculum to help the children broaden their knowledge by exposing them to things they wouldn’t encounter. These experiences enhance the children’s cultural awareness and develop their understanding of values and beliefs as well as challenging preconceived perceptions. Moreover, by seeing for themselves, the real life examples of what they have been learning, the children gain a deeper understanding of the topic, which increases their motivation to learn and retain the information.
We provide a very wide variety of extra-curricular activities that your child is able to take part in such ranging from football to singing to enrich our exciting curriculum offer.
