Outdoor active learning

ActivitiesPosted by Mrs McStay Fri, September 22, 2017 03:41PM

Every week, we will have an outdoor session of 'Active Learning'. We are very fortunate to have some lovely new equipment that was donated to us by the PTA. We are also making use of the wonderful new outside area that we share with the playgroup.

Children just love these sessions and it is a great opportunity for us to see how well they socialise with their peers and to hear them talking about their learning with their peers.
