This room is specifically designed to accommodate the needs of all children aged 3 years old and above. We provide excellent facilities and a safe and happy environment where children can grow in confidence and learn new skills. We develop learning through play and a carefully planned programme to develop physical, intellectual, emotional and social skills at their own pace and level, using developmentally appropriate activities and equipment.
The classroom is designed so that resources and activities are accessible for all children. Each day, there is access to a number of different activites, that are regularly rotated, which promotes choice. We enable children to develop social independence skills which they will utilise during transition periods.
Also in the Ladybirds:
In the Math's area we have introduced Numicon's which is to make numbers real for children through them being able to see and touch them, for example, counting each hole or shaping them into sequence. Each numicon gives children an image of what the number looks like.
