We have a selection of the following activities available and children are free to move both inside and outside:

  • Construction
  • Puzzles and games
  • Number and letter activities
  • Art and craft activities

Our continuous provision enables children to make choices about activities and resources they would like to get out.

10.00am-11.00am: Rolling Snack time
There is a choice of milk or water to drink, followed by fruit and biscuits. The children are encouraged to pour their own drinks and serve the snacks.

We set up the climbing frame, balance beam, tents and tunnels, bats and balls, to name a few. We also have some other activities available for children who want to play quietly e.g. construction, small world, puzzles, books.
12.05pm: Story time
We listen to a story and sing songs.
Some children go home.

There is an optional lunch club between 12.15 and 1.15 for children over the age of 3 yrs.

Children sit at tables with an adult and eat lunch together. They are encouraged to eat sandwiches and healthy food first. It is an opportunity to talk about how we keep healthy, and to socialise at a meal time. When they have finished the children are encouraged to pack away their lunch things and can then choose toys to play with.

On Thursday and Friday afternoons we now run a later session until 2.45pm.
