Fireflies Class - Nursery, Reception and Year 1
FF Forest

Fireflies is a class of 16 children in Nursery-Y1. In the Fireflies we teach through a play-based curriculum for our Reception and Nursery children with the Year 1 curriculum taught alongside. The children enjoy using both our indoor and outdoor environment to enhance their learning and development.

We use a topic-based approach in both our morning and afternoon learning. This follows children's interests, as well as covering the KS1 national curriculum. Our provision areas are enhanced to support this learning.

Due to our small class size, the children are both challenged and supported as individuals. We promote independent learning to allow the children to become confident in learning from their mistakes and successes. They are encouraged to try new things and grow through different opportunities.

Outdoor Learning

In the Fireflies we love to learn both indoors and outdoors. The children love to engage with our exciting outdoor resources such as our waterwall, mud kitchen and art area. This encourages the children to be imaginative and creative within their play, as well as exploring through problem solving opportunities.

Our Forest School takes place in our local woodland, close by to the school. These sessions allow the children to learn all about and understand the world around them. Forest School provides opportunities for children to be creative, work within nature, learn about the weather and seasons, manage risk, observe wildlife, develop their imagination and work with a range of materials.
