Excellent Eagles/Pre - school, in Clifton, Bristol
Our Eagles are learning lots of new skills to help them become independent, happy individuals. Their communication and language is really progressing, and we will be helping with social skills that they will need for
They will learn through play how to share and socialise with other
children and adults. We always encourage positive behaviour and
praise the children to encourage this. We will emphasise the
importance of communication and language in our literacy area with
games, mark making, singing and rhyming. We use Makaton at
group time, this is simple sign language that aids communication.
We have a mathematics area, with shapes, magnets and science
activities children can access these area at all times.
The children have group time where they are encouraged to talk to
each other about their experiences, they can bring in an item from
home for show and tell.
We use this time to talk about days of the week, the weather,
seasons etc. We like to talk about the wider world around them and
we promote the health of the planet with classroom re-cycling and
discussions about the environment. To keep the children healthy we
have a daily fitness routine, called The Morning Shake, the children
keep fit to music and it wakes them up ready for their day.
The Eagles spend the day free-flowing from the inside to the
outside so they can choose were they would like to play, we have lots of natural resources for them to get the imagination flowing. They have a play room and a messy/art room to choose from and the two gardens.

The outside area
The outside area is two areas a turfed area and the nature garden,
they can explore both areas in different ways. The turfed side has a fairy
house and rain shelter with water pumps and soft play, the nature garden is full of insect attracting plants, and open ended resources, they have a mud kitchen and water play and sometimes we have chickens for them to collect the eggs. We have story time outside with a little camp fire on cold days and we let the children explore the garden in the way that they wish.
