Speech and Language Support
We also have a separate speech and language room where we can help children with additional needs experience AAC (Augmented and Alternate Communication).
Children who have English as an additional language can also use this room so that they can feel comfortable and confident with the spoken language.
Children with additional needs
We have a designated additional needs teacher who has vast experience in helping children with additional needs achieve the highest expectations possible. We have a sensory room for children to relax in with a bubble tube filled with fish (not real fish!) and mood lighting.
Our garden has been upgraded to include a soft-landing surface, a climbing frame with a slide and a fireman’s pole. We also have a mud kitchen, sand and waterplay areas and a digging area where children can look for worms and other exciting wildlife! We also have a Pirate ship which the children love to play in.
Montessori Maths and Language
We have a designated Montessori teacher. She works with all children who are moving on to primary education at the end of the summer term. Her role is to take small phonics groups to teach the children letter sounds, this then progresses, when each child is ready, to blending sounds to read simple words. Once the child is confident sounding out and blending they are ready to become supported independent readers. Montessori maths skills are also developed in small groups throughout the session, always working to the child's individual ability. The children are then ready for the transition into primary school with all the attributes necessary to continue their learning & development.
2 Year Old's Room
The designated two year old room is completely carpeted to allow younger children to work comfortably on the floor. During freeflow the younger children are welcome to explore the three year old room as well. Activities in this room focus on early concepts such as big/little, sorting objects, early number recognition 1-5 along with construction, creativity and role play areas.
