We love learning outside so we are very lucky to have our outside classroom and we often go to the forest school too! When we are outside we like to play in the sand pit, build dens, play in the house, construct using wooden blocks, explore using our discovery resources and clipboards as well as role play, draw, count, climb and much, much more!

This is our library area where we have lots of reading resources, a wide range of books, including guided reading sets, and even some bedtime stories which we can take home to share with our families!

We also love to read in our cosy book areas in the classrooms and sometimes we can even take a few books into our tent to read quietly by ourselves or with our friends!

We are very fortunate to have a teacher and two other key workers in our classrooms. This means that we can work in groups of ten with an adult at the start of the day and during snack time.

We have lots of wonderful resources in our rooms so here are a few examples of the things we like to play and learn with during the day:

Home corner:

In the home corner we like to cook for each other and host parties and sleepovers for our friends. We help with the washing up and we write shopping lists and recipes too!

Discovery area:

We have plenty of writing tools both inside and outside to help us learn to write. We also do phonics every afternoon to help us learn our sounds and use these sounds in reading and writing activities.

We really enjoy exploring number, shape, space and measure using a variety of resources and in a range of problem-solving scenarios.
