Our Learning Environments…
The indoor environment provides a safe, secure yet challenging space for all children to explore and learn. It contains well planned resources and activities which are appropriate, accessible and flexible to all.
Being outdoors has a positive impact on children's sense of well-being and helps all aspects of children's development. It allows children to do things in different ways and on different scales than when indoors. We have a lovely new outdoor space, which we share with the other Reception class, that all of the children can access.
Reception/Year 1 curriculums
Although in our class we have a mix of Reception and Year 1 children, our lessons and activities are all designed with the children in mind. The Reception children will still access the Reception curriculum, and the Year 1’s will still access the Year 1 curriculum, as the teachers plan together to ensure all of the children’s needs are met.
Play underpins all development and learning for young children. Most children play spontaneously, although some may need adult support.
It is through play and practical activities that children develop intellectually, creatively, physically, socially and emotionally.
In Marvellous Maple we aim to provide well-planned play experiences, both indoors and outdoors, through topics that excite, interest and challenge our children.
Our topics this year are…
Autumn 1 – All about me
Autumn 2 – Celebrations
Spring 3 – Children’s choice
Spring 4 – Growing
Summer 5 – Children’s choice
Summer 6 – The seaside
In Marvellous Maple we try our best to be Aldercar stars all year round.
