The Rocket Room is designed to support your child as their learning capacity grows preparing them for school. With the emphasis still very much on play we offer children the opportunities to further develop their social skills, their communication and listening, their creativity and their physical skills. Through interesting and enjoyable planned topics, we also explore the other areas of the Foundation Stage curriculum – learning to understand the world around us and introducing more literacy and mathematics.
We use a wide range of age appropriate and culturally diverse toys and books to aid our learning so we have imaginative and structured play.
Everyday we enjoy a letters and sounds session, supporting children’s skills in developing the ability to define the different sounds they hear and make. This gives them the underpinning knowledge to later on recognise the difference between and B and a P complementing the Early Years Curriculum. We offer a drop off and collection service to our local schools so that you can also take advantage of our excellent partnerships.
All of our rockets are offered the opportunity to have some time away from the structured learning zone by attending the holiday club. This change of pace and fun active sessions are hugely enjoyed by the children and the staff.
We use rocket rings and high visibility jackets to move safely within our local environment. This enables us to explore a range of play and learning within our local community.
“Children make good progress. They develop the skills needed for future learning in readiness for their move on to school. They develop confidence and lead on their own play. Ofsted 2017
