All preschool use Makaton sign language to support effective communication and language for all children.  We also have regular Write Dance activities to support the children's motor skill development and make sure we are super ready for writing!

 

As well as all this, we are lucky enough to have access to our very own Forest School and we put on our wellies and waterproofs and go on adventures into the woods each week.

 

Phew!  What a busy week!
