Getting ready for school

Forest School 15.05.15 (60)All the children who attend The Willow Set enjoy a rich environment which is paramount in producing strategies to enable them to resolve problems, work collaboratively within their peer group and extend their own individual learning development and skills. These range from physical activities and exercise to help them develop their gross and fine motor skills, to small world and role play activities which aim to enhance their communication and language skills, literacy, knowledge of the world, personal and social skills, along with maths and expressive art and design as emphasized within the revised Practice Guidance for the Early years Profile.

The rising 5s group takes us one step further and supports the transitions and school readiness to ensure every child is supported through their personal transition process, irrespective of their needs; This will ensure that their learning and development will be maintained throughout the Early Years Foundation Stage .Collaboration of everyone involved with the child should ensure that the holistic development of every child is catered for, keeping them at the centre of the whole process. The stages of transition are managed in order to enhance their well being and performance as learners, seeking to ensure that everybody feels involved within the process.
