The Raindrops room opens in October 2016, it is a purpose built unit, designed especially for two year old children. Our team of staff will provide high quality play based provision to meet the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) including role play, sand ,water ,construction ,reading ,mark making, and outside play. Our children’s creative and imaginative skills are broadened with well-planned play activities which will develop a knowledge and understanding of the world around them. The room will be well equipped with suitable furniture, equipment and resources. Free flow between areas, including outside, offers children a choice of activities allowing them to engage in learning which is relevant and appropriate to their stage of development. They will be supported by knowledgeable, qualified and appropriately trained adults who will encourage them to further their speech, language and understanding skills. We can offer both funded and sessional paid provision, including before and after school care. Admission for the early year’s class will be determined by the admission policy of the school.

We had a lovely week welcoming our parents into Raindrops for stay and play. The children enjoyed playing in different areas of the setting and showing their Mummy's and Daddy's what they like to do. 

The children enjoyed dressing up for Children in Need as they wore spotty clothes, decorated biscuits, looked at a variety of bear stories and made marks on Pudsey the bear.

 

This week we have explored the school orchard. Where we loved for seasonal changes and talked to the children about what had happened to the leaves on the trees. 

The children have enjoyed printing with a range of media and materials. We have used brushes, apples and leaves to look at the marks that they make. The children have loved exploring these marks that each one of these made.

The children have enjoyed making hedgehog bread. The loved exploring the dough between their fingers and then using the sniper scissors to create spikes for the hedgehog.

We have enjoyed exploring the indoor and outdoor provison as we make some new friends.
