Although our setting offers plenty of learning opportunities and space both inside and out, we do like to venture out and about:
We take full advantage of the wealth our little village has to offer; we go shopping for our snack, we go on woodland adventures in the forest and we go pond dipping at the pond. We also get books from the Library Bus and visit the tennis courts.
Colden Common Primary School
Every Monday we visit Colden Common Primary School to carry out our music and movement sessions. We also hold our annual sponsored Welly Boot Throw in the School’s playground.
Every year we visit Finkley Down Farm in Andover where we have lots of fun handling chicks, rabbits and grooming the ponies!
We have also introduced a trip to the theatre as well. The children love the magic of the theatre and enjoy the live music and dancing!
Each year we hold two community events – an Easter Egg Hunt in the Spring and a Scarecrow Festival in the Autumn. These events bring the whole community (and those from the surrounding areas) together. Those who attend enjoy a range of activities including a trail, arts and crafts and story time sessions.
Holiday Play Dates
Every school holiday our committee organises at least one play date. This is an excellent opportunity for the children to get together outside the setting, for the parents to meet each other and to discover somewhere new and exciting to play. We go to play parks, country parks, the woods and even the beach!
