We believe that our pupil’s learning experience is deepened and enriched by carrying out extra-curricular activities. The Nursery Class are offered a wide variety of extra-curricular activities that are often carried out by specialist teachers who teach across the rest of the Prep school.
The broad range of activities gives children the opportunity to try different things, find something they enjoy, stimulating new ideas and a new way of thinking in the process.
Through the exploration of Art, Music and Drama, we encourage creative thinking and individual expression, as well as trying out new things. We provide a wide range of different materials and toys for children to use to express themselves and use in their own way as they wish.
Being outside gives children a sense of freedom and is fantastic for their physical and mental development. Children who learn to play outdoors are more likely to have an appreciation of the environment, naturally develop social skills and by making their own discoveries encourages independence. Every day the children play and learn outside, and each fortnight they take part in a Forest School session with a trained Forest School expert.
We offer our Nursery Class the opportunity to learn a broad range of extra-curricular activities. Specialist teachers who teach the older Prep school children are timetabled to teach in The Nursery Class. This includes weekly swimming with a qualified coach, fortnightly Forest School Sessions with a trained Forest School teacher as well as music, art, drama and ballet.
