River House Pre-school
4-5 YEAR OLDS
The emphasis is on learning through play. We create secret foundations of learning to prepare them for entry into our primary school in a year’s time. Activities are underpinned by 7 Learning Intentions: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Expressive Arts and Design, Physical Development and Understanding the World. The timetable is based around weekly or monthly themes, for example ‘Holidays’ will include creating beach pictures, sand and water play, beach role-play, beach letter sounds, drawing or writing postcards and counting shells. We take full advantage of our beautiful gardens and most activities take place outside. The class is in a separate building within our main school grounds and the children join the other classes for lunch.
