The children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are encouraged to learn through play and exploration, through being active, creative and thinking critically. The staff aim for the children to be inspired by their experiences; motivated by stimulating environments and equipment; fully engaged in their learning and, ultimately, to be empowered to continue to explore and learn themselves, independently. This is managed through carefully planned lessons and activities and opportunities for adult-led and adult- directed sessions as well as ample opportunity for child-initiated learning.
Acorns and Oaks are a fabulous class full of motivated, friendly and hard working children. We enjoy a lively environment where children are inquisitive and keen to explore. Children are encouraged to talk about their learning and we begin on an exciting learning journey. We are always reflecting on our ‘next steps’ and considering how we can squeeze the learning out of every opportunity.
