How the classes work
Sessions last 60/90 minutes and follow a similar routine each week to engage the children fully.
Sessions include a wide range of outdoor activities to challenge, stimulate and involve all children.
All resources and equipment needed for activities will be provided.
To enjoy the sessions fully, children must be warm and dry. A warm insulated coat, waterproof trousers or puddle suit and wellies are recommended. Adults need to remember to wrap up warm too.
All sessions will be entirely outside so hats, scarfs and gloves may be needed on colder days.
Due to the nature of the activities (and as our name suggests) children may get muddy and dirty, however we believe that is all part of the fun and the learning process!
Each session is planned and delivered in line with a Nursery/Reception class, introducing children to the structures and routines they may encounter during their academic life. There will be times the children will be encouraged to play and explore, other times the older children will be required to listen and respond with adult support, giving a gentle introduction to school life.
