Visits and Visitors
We use the curriculum to enhance and broaden the experiences and opportunities available to children in our setting. We provide a wide range of exciting and stimulating activities for children, often building on their own interests. Some examples include; Forest Schools sessions; Orchard exploration; Trips offsite; and visitors to the setting.
November 2021 - Dave from 'The Creepy Crawly Show' visited our F1 classes and shared a story 'Oliver's Animal Adventures - the windy day', introducing children to the various animals that appeared throughout the story. This included: a tarantula, a Californian king snake, a boa constrictor, a giant African land snail, a tenrec (looks like a hedgehog but not), a barn owl, a bearded dragon and a leopard gecko. All the children enjoyed the interactive sessions and many were keen to touch and hold the animals, carefully following Dave's instructions. What an exciting day - take a look at the photos here!
July 2022 - F1 children had the opportunity to visit Chester Zoo with a parent. The weather was perfect and everyone had a fantastic time exploring the zoo.
