Paddington Bear Room
These rooms complete our children's preparation for School. They enable the children to have space for undisturbed periods of concentration. The Paddington room offers the children opportunities to develop their IT skills, early literacy and numeracy, science and knowledge of the world and to enjoy and participate confidently in formal group times. The children are encouraged to start serving their own snack, lunch and tea in this room. The children make full use of the woodland and the large outside play area. They also go on local walks in the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Paddington Bear Room takes children from three years onwards. This is a happy stimulating Room where children will be taught the basic educational skills of handwriting, numbers and the alphabet.
Subject areas include art, craft, music, drama, cooking, painting and expressive play. Topic work is followed throughout the year.
Each child has their own development folder, which includes observations, pictures and art work, these will be completed by the child's individual key person and is available for the parents to see and take home.
The baby room children have the opportunity to take part in our Monkey Music sessions which are held on a Wednesday, please email us for more details.
To give the children the best preparation for their next step into Primary School, the Room has a staff / children ratio of 1:8.
