Our Learning Environment

The classroom

In our classroom we have our learning tables.  These are at the heart of everything we do, it is where we come together to share our thoughts and ideas and to listen to each other and to learn together.  

Each child also has their own bay which his their own space where they can choose to have quiet time and do their own activities.  

Our reading corner is a lovely place to read and share books.  

 

 

Outdoor area

Our outdoor area leads out directly from the classroom and is safely enclosed. It has it’s own trim trail and is a great space for the development of physical skills and personal, social and emotional skills.   We develop co-operative play and strategies to build resilience to develop positive relationships to enjoy shared games.

The topic room

Our topic room is another space for us to develop co-operative play and build positive relationships between children. It is set up for active and creative learning around our topic.

The calm room

Our calm room is a space where children can go if they are finding things too difficult to manage in the small group setting. It has  bean bags, blankets, soft toys and books. It is somewhere to calm down, relax and talk about difficulties before returning to the small group.
