Wrap Around Care
We provide wrap around care for children in our Early Years 2-5 setting, this includes 2 Year play and learn, Nursery and Reception. Whilst in childcare we reflect what children have been learning in school through play based activities.
Danielle will be working closely with staff in school to ensure there is cohesive learning throughout the school and into the childcare setting. Danielle has taken over the responsibilities of working with wrap around children while Sharon is on maternity leave from 29th October 2018.
For wrap around key children we are working with nursery and reception, to help the children working towards their next steps in learning.
Please feel free to look at our photographs to see what we have been up to recently.
Since coming back after October half term, the wrap around children showed an interest in the story of the Gruffalo. After the reading the story the children wanted to go on a hunt to see if we could find the Gruffalo in school grounds. As we made our way around the school the children began to anticipate what character we might find next and where they could be hiding.
During focus activities within childcare, the wrap around children and Danielle have been looking at their numbers, learning the rhymes and how to form the numbers correctly. When choosing outside some of the children initiated forming the numbers zero and one on the ground with the chalk. Well done!
This week in school we have been celebrating friendship week, we are very lucky that our children show so much respect to each other throughout our time in setting. We have talked about what we think it means to be a good friend to someone and how. The wrap around children really enjoyed joining up with the 2 year olds to be good role models and to make some new friends.
