Activities & Play
We offer lots of activities to ensure we meet the desirable learning targets defined by the School Curriculum and Assessment Authority:
Personal, social and emotional development
Communication, language and literacy
Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy
Knowledge and understanding the world
The children are given a wide choice of activities using our extensive range of equipment.
The children spend time engaged with different activities, both indoors and outdoors.
During the morning we open the snack bar for the children. We provide a drink of water and they choose from a selection of fruit, vegetables, breadsticks and rice cakes. Depending on the child’s age and confidence we try to promote independence and self-achievement by encouraging them to pour their own drinks and collect their snacks.
The children spend a lot of time in free play but there are also times in the morning when we gather together for group activities.
We encourage the children to take part in all activities but some may need a little reassurance; it does not usually take long before they want to join in. All children are encouraged to tidy away the toys.
We create a ‘Learning Journey Book’ with your child and this is available to view upon request. The children are encouraged to bring in photos/mementos from trips they have been on with their family.
We learn about a different topic every week alongside all the regular daily activities.
