Music sessions on Wednesdays are always fun! We sing familiar songs, put actions to songs, act out songs and rhymes, move to a wide variety of music, use props such as colourful ribbons, puppets, chiffon scarves or the parachute. We create new songs, and play lots of percussion instruments.
Picasso said "Every child is an artist" and we nurture and develop each child's creative side. Paint, clay, glue, collage, papier mache, junk modelling, marbling and many other resources are used with imagination and self-expression to create wonderfully individual artworks
We have weekly drama sessions with Mrs Lisa leading the children in a story, adventure or acting out a scenario with input from them, to encourage imagination, self-expression and build confidence.
Our weekly cooking sessions give the children hands-on practical experience of chopping, grating, sieving, squeezing, measuring, mixing, rolling and making many different dishes, both sweet and savory. We use lots of fruit and vegetables, follow a pictorial recipe from raw ingredients to finished dishes - and eat them with our friends at school.
Forest School is outside based learning which teaches personal, social and technical skills, building a child's self-esteem and independence through challenging and stimulating planned activities.
We love to move our bodies and develop our physical skills. One afternoon session each week focuses specifically on running, jumping, crawling, marching, balancing, experimenting with movement, ball skills, parachute games and many other fun activities.
