This is our area for group stories, singing or looking at books alone and in small groups. We encourage children to take home books from our library. This area is also where we enjoy the firm favourite 'Carpet time' with 'Show and Tell'.
We work closely with our children to develop their first computer and ICT skills.
We help our children to experiment with building using different materials and tools.
Our children can develop their fine motor skills whilst expressing their ideas and talking about what they've created. We have a wide range of activities such as painting, drawing, cutting and model-making.
This is a constantly changing space where we create themed play areas such as our winter igloo.
Snack time cafe
A selection of healthy, nutritious and seasonal snacks and drinks is available every day throughout the morning and afternoon sessions. The children are encouraged to choose from a short menu in our Café. The food we serve is prepared in our kitchen. We received an 'Outstanding' in our recent hygiene inspection. Any allergies or dietary requirements are always taken in account.
Messy indoor play
Our children can express themselves in different ways with anything from paint, sand and water, to play dough, pebbles and jelly, and have lots of fun in the process.
Role play and dressing up
We give our children the opportunity to talk, interact together and act out their own stories.
We are committed to making our outdoor environment as rich and diverse as possible, so that our children's learning is extended to their outdoor play all year round. We are very proud of our fantastic grass and tarmac areas, which are well equipped with ride-on vehicles, a climbing frame, a slide, a sand-pit and lots of outdoor games. We also have a gardening area where we plant flowers and vegetables and watch them grow. The children love having the opportunity to go outside every day, whatever the weather, and we provide wellies and waterproofs.
