Activities & Beyond Hours Care
Special Guests & Extra-curricular Trips
The Department welcomes a series of special guests throughout the year who offer engaging talks and displays to the children on a wide variety of topics. Extra-curricular trips complement work undertaken in the classroom and further broaden the children’s horizons.
Forest School is set amongst the lovely copse of trees where children sit to discuss their activities, observations and findings around a log circle amongst the trees in our beautiful grounds. The children are extremely enthusiastic about their weekly trip to Forest School. This has enabled them to broaden their knowledge of natural habitats, trees, leaves, insects, bird life and woodland creatures, such as squirrels and hedgehogs.
After School Club
After School Club is available every afternoon from 3.35pm to 5.30pm. It takes place in the Nursery classrooms.
At After School Club it is our intention to provide a safe, secure, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere where children whose ages range from 3 to 7 years can relax after a day at school. Children are free to choose from a wide range of activities to include sand, paint, writing/colouring materials, board games, books, library, computer (in the Nursery), construction toys and jigsaws. All equipment in the Nursery is available for the children to use. Two members of staff are always on hand to supervise and take care of the children. All school policies and procedures apply to After School Club.
With supervision and weather permitting, children are able to play outside in the Nursery/Infant playground. Tennis racquets, small and large balls, beanbags, skipping ropes, scooters and trikes are available for the children to choose from. A light healthy snack is provided consisting of toast, fruit, dried fruit and sugar-free squash. All children sit at the table with staff whilst eating and good manners are encouraged and promoted. Parents fill out a consent form with information relating to dietary requirements, contact numbers and any medical conditions that we should know about.
