We organise our sessions so that children can choose from and work at a range of activities. The children are encouraged to take part in adult led small and large group activities. Outdoor activities contribute to children’s health and physical development and their knowledge of the world around them.
We operate a free flow system. The doors to the front play area are open so that children may access the outdoor area during the day. They will be supervised while they are in the playground.
The children are able to access IT resources throughout the session and are encouraged to use programmes independently. We provide the appropriate software and equipment such as an easy to control mouse for children of this age range. We have a tablet with a range of suitable apps. We have digital cameras for the children to use under adult supervision. We have a tape recorder / CD player with headphones that can ne used by up to six children at a time.
We are following the Healthy Norfolk Schools guidelines, and would like to remind you to look at what you put in your child’s packed lunch. The following are some very useful tips.
- No sugary drinks
- No chocolate biscuits or sweets
- One or two sandwiches or a roll (often lots of sandwiches are just too much)
- One Yoghurt
- Fresh fruit/salad (aiming for five a day)
- Small portion of raisins or sultanas (also count as your five a day)
An ideas sheet for packed lunches is available.
We charge £2.00 per day for your child to stay at Lunch time. Please bring in a named purse or envelope on your first weekly session. If you do not wish your child to stay please collect them at 11:50am returning at 12.10pm
Lunch Times are not part of your childcare entitlement.
Please provide an appropriate named lunch box with ice pack to ensure contents stay cool and a spoon if required.
During each session the children are able to have a healthy snack including fruit, salad, vegetables (carrot sticks), bread (toast), milk and water are available. The setting makes snacks and meals a social time at which children and adults eat together. Do tell us about your child’s dietary needs and we will make sure that these are met.
.Outings and visits
From time to time we arrange short outings to local places of interest including a walk down to our community garden at the end of the road.
During the school year we invite in a variety of visitors including the local PCSO and Librarian.
