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.
Sports day was a huge success and all of the children across Childcare, 2 Year and Nursery had so much fun taking part in all of the different races. Unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side this year and we had to do it in the school hall which meant parents couldn't attend, therefore staff ensured that lots of pictures were taken so that you could enjoy looking through them with your child. Although the weather wasn't the best we still enjoyed a lovely cool ice lolly at the end of the day as we watched our friend receive their winners medals.
The wrap around children were so excited when they found out we were making ice lollies for us to try. We placed all of the ingredients on the table and each child picked what they would like to add to their ice lolly. As we made the lollies we were talking about why we were adding fruit and why our ice lollies would be healthier than the ones we can buy from the shops.
We have been loving the summer sun and at any given opportunity we have headed outside to enjoy it! We all headed up to the top field armed with lots of different sports equipment for a fun filled afternoon, all of the children had a go at everything. We were practising batting skills, throwing and kicking skills, with a few games of tag as well! It was so much fun!
We have been trying so hard with our number recognition and the practise has paid off! We are getting so much more confident and quicker at finding the numbers! Well done!
This half term we are looking at growth and change. The children showed an interest in wanting to plant some of their own seeds to look after and help grow. During this activity we talked about what the seeds will need to grow, the children came up with lots of different ideas. Together, we decided the seeds needed soil, water and the sunshine to grow into healthy plants, the children have loved looking after the seeds, making sure they have plenty of water and that they are in the sunlight.
We have had so much fun out and about the school grounds and practising our climbing skills on the timber trail. Some of the children found it a little bit daunting to jump off the end of the timber trail but with the support and encouragement of the staff they gave it a good go and made us all so proud. They were even brave enough to make their way up to the highest step on the climbing frame. Well Done Everyone!
