This summer we have updated our Reception/ Year 1 classroom. We passionately believe in the curiosity approach (also known as the Reggio Emilia approach) which is based on creative ways of learning to develop awe and wonder. This is based on best practice across the country and rooted in research.
The prevalence of natural materials provide a sensory experience and a blank canvas on which children can develop their imaginations. It has also been shown to develop a calmer environment in the classroom. We have thought very hard about what our children need in order to learn and grow. We are really proud of how it looks and how well the children are interacting with it.
Huge thanks to Miss L i n d e r a n d Ad r i a n (o u r p r e m i s e s officer) for their work on this over the summer.
