Activities //Scroll down to view just some of the activities we provide in both in and outdoor classrooms.
Weekly activities for Cocoons and Butterflies
Each day begins with morning welcome! The children explore the sound and song of the week. We also say hello to everyone and talk about our achievements and share our news (BIRTHDAYS ETC).
We aim to take every child on a woodland nature walk, at least once a week. This allows them to explore nature and the local environment, in all weather conditions!! It also aids friendships and physical development. We complete small musical groups weekly.
This allows the children to explore rhythm, percussion instruments, singing and dancing games. We explore painting, water and sand play every day. This allows textures, colours and language to be investigated and explored.

Nappies are checked and changed regularly throughout the day to meet each child's individual care needs, as and when they are needed.
