Tuesday's - P.E / Forest School

Tuesday afternoons are going to alternate each week and will either be an afternoon at forest school (outdoor learning on the field) or an afternoon of PE. On PE weeks, the children will need to come to school wearing their PE kit on the Tuesday. On Forest school weeks, children should come to school dressed in old clothes, wellies and waterproofs so that they can explore outside.

Continuous provision

Continuous provision is the children's opportunity to learn through play. The classroom and outdoor environment are set up to ensure that children are able to initiate and explore activities whilst learning and developing key academic, social and physical skills. During continuous provision, the adults role is to ensure that play is purposeful and to challenge the children's thinking.

Outdoor learning

Our classroom door is open during continuous provision to enable free-flow between the classroom and the outdoor area. During the winter months, please make sure your child has a warm coat, hat, gloves and scarf. If you would like your child to have a pair of wellies at school, please bring them in a labelled bag. During the hotter months of the year, please ensure that you apply sun cream to your child before the start of the school day.

Any questions...

If you have any questions, worries or concerns then please don’t hesitate to speak with us at the classroom or alternatively you can contact us via our class email...
