Welcome to Little Conkers Class
Our Pre-Reception runs from 9.00am – 3.15pm Monday to Friday during term time, offering a range of sessions for 3 and 4 year olds.
In our Pre-Reception class our time is spent having lots of fun playing and learning together.
The day begins with the children finding and putting their name cards up on the chestnut tree to show they are at school. Then the children choose an activity to start at. When everyone has arrived, we gather together on the mat and welcome each other by singing and signing our Good Morning song.
Then it’s back to play again! We play indoors and outdoors, and as soon as the children are settled and familiar with routines, we also explore the other wonderful spaces around our school.
Each day includes plenty of singing with including nursery rhymes and number songs, and we love adding actions!
Snack times and lunchtime provide opportunities for eating and talking together, and developing social skills.
At times, the children work individually or in a smaller group with the teacher or teaching assistant on short tasks matched to their learning needs.
Little Conkers room is a busy place, often noisy and messy, but sometimes very quiet!
Just before home time we gather together for a story and share what we have enjoyed doing.
Activities change and develop over the week in response to the children’s interests and learning steps. The children each have a personal online Learning Journey using software called Tapestry, which builds into a lovely record of their learning, including photos, comments and observations. Parents are able to view this and are encouraged to add their own photos and comments from home. The children are encouraged to be as independent as they can, and to ask questions, explore and try things out for themselves.
You are very Welcome to come and visit us and to find out more!
