Early Years focuses strongly on learning outside as well as in the classroom environment. We create many opportunities for children to use outside environments for them to explore and enhance their learning. For example, learning outside the classroom allows the children to explore the different seasons, natural materials and leading their own learning through play.
As well as PE lessons where the children develop their gross and fine motor skills, Elephant and Lions attend weekly swimming sessions where they focus on learning about safety and developing their confidence in the water. It is a great opportunity for children to improve their independence with changing and dressing.
Throughout the year various trips will be planned including to the park, farm, forest, and shop. We also encourage visitors into school to enhance their learning such as a fire engine and a variety of different animals.
