3-5’s (Little Einstein’s)
In the Little Einstein’s room we offer a range of activities to suit all children’s interests and likes.
We do PE and movement on a regular basis and encourage the children to get themselves dressed and undressed with minimal help.
We do daily pencil control skills using different activities to promote and progress the children’s abilities. This also includes cutting skills and mouse control, using ICT to enhance this. Tablets are also used for the children to understand the way tablets, etc. can be used for learning tasks, rather than just games!
We have lots of fun doing circle time where we share ideas and gives the children opportunities to talk and discuss emotions. Art activities are encouraged which also allow the children to express themselves (this is also a great way to celebrate different religions which the children like to do).
We offer the children continuous provision as well as adult led, structured activities. These are available for the children each and every day and encourage them to make choices for themselves, as well as use their imagination.
Story time and singing is a big part of our day, inclusive of role play and drama.
We try to encourage the children to eat independently and try new foods. We offer them a good choice of foods which they serve themselves and pour their own drinks…always trying to develop their independent skills, where they get ready for their next journey at school.
We have a Nursery garden and the children enjoy caring for this. We grow our own fruit and vegetables which we then use for cooking!
