What does Ofsted say?
Staff plan activities for children that are engaging and challenging, such as creating an obstacle course in the garden from assorted recycled tyres, planks and crates. The Pre-school is very well presented. The children interact with a wide range of resources that motivate them to learn, such as, pretend play areas that replicate the home or shops. Effective assessments and planning means that children needs are well met.

This term the children have been very interested in finding worms in our garden and slugs at forest school. They have made spider web pictures with glue and glitter. We also have made a real wormery and have played with “spaghetti” worms in pretend mud. The children have also been playing Doctors so we have set up a small surgery in the classroom.
Class 2 have been exploring Outer Space and have made their own planets to go in the role play area. They have also been enjoying music and movement in Brill School, and play all sorts of group games.The children found some dinosaur eggs and helped them to hatch.
