Welcome to the 2 Year Room
Hello, and welcome to the 2 Year room! We are part of the Early Years team, and we love having the children join us before starting their school journey at this crucial age! Our main aim is to encourage the children with us to develop their learning and life skills with us, mainly through their play. We feel this is the best way to help the children develop to their fullest potential, we help the children make sense of the world around them in an in-direct way. Through playing it helps the children to develop verbally, socially, cognitively and emotionally, to name a few. This also helps them to gain the self-confidence needed to engage in new experiences and environments throughout their lives.
If you have any questions or queries please don’t
hesitate to speak to any of the 2 Year room staff! :)

Build the World - RRSA 29
This half term in Spring 1 our curriculum focus is 'Build the World. We will be exploring different homes around the world, what we have in our homes, habitats and dens and we will be developing our relationships with our local community too!
Keep checking the website for updated photographs and updates on this!
Today we invited parents in to join us in learning all about our oral health and how we can help develop this further at home. We listened to a story about visiting the dentist and then discussed how often we need to brush our teeth and for how long, we all had a really in-depth chat about how we can help if anyone is struggling at home with this too, before taking part in some activities related to this topic.
