Pre-Prep Notice Board


A Peek at our Week

We have had a lovely and busy four days back. Nursery have a super new learning area and are enjoying the new layout in the classroom – they are all particularly fond of the ‘help yourself’ water table. No one has gone thirsty in the Nursery this week! Some great new role play areas have popped up around the school: Year 1 have a huge igloo, with snow and a real sledge. Reception and Year 2 are both learning about the world this term, so have created travel agencies for the children to work in. It is lovely seeing how the children progress and make different uses of a similar area. The Year 2 children are taking their travel agency very seriously and even took boarding passes outside at playtime to ensure everyone was travelling to the correct destination!
