Please do not dress your child in their best clothes - provide them with practical clothing with fastenings that they can manage on their own. We encourage independence and we LOVE to get messy! We encourage children to wear aprons and outdoor waterproofs but sometimes we still get mud, water or paint on them whilst we are playing and learning.
It is essential that all uniform is clearly labelled with the children’s names.
Our environment encourages children to explore and develop confidence and independence.
Enjoying books is a very important part of children’s development. We want children to develop a love of books and reading from an early age and encourage this by providing books and props in our cosy reading area and throughout the classroom. We share books with the children on a daily basis and enjoy re-enacting stories and retelling them with puppets.
Our children love our playdough area. They help to make it everyday by ‘reading’ our recipe card. Manipulating the playdough helps to develop their physical skills and aids the children’s sensory development. The children love to make cakes and pancakes out of playdough and enjoy adding new smells, textures and colours. The children explore different tools including rolling pins, cutters and scissors in this area.
