COOL time is something that your child may talk about. It means Choose Our Own Learning. This is our continuous provision.
The purpose of an effective continuous provision is to offer children a constant environment that is safe for them to explore whilst challenging their learning. It should allow children the freedom to explore and become independent in making choices. An important part of the EYFS is to support children in becoming active learners; continuous provision allows children to demonstrate this aspect and allows us as adults to closely observe this during their play.
Your child is welcome to bring a named water bottle to school to use throughout the day. There is access to a water fountain outside and we encourage the children to keep themselves hydrated throughout the day.
We also have milk available (for those under 5) and fresh fruit for all of the children on a daily basis.
We have a mud kitchen which the children have access to in our outdoor area. We ask that the children wear aprons and wellies. Please provide your child with a pair of named wellies to keep at school. We provide aprons although we cannot always guarantee that the children will stay mud free!
