Rising 2’s

Our Rising 2’s room is a beautiful light airy, and inspiring room with large windows and doors encouraging children to use the outdoor space as well as the indoor space to learn and play.

The room is designed and equipped to develop all areas of children’s learning including music, reading, writing and mark making,  role play, construction, painting and creative play, with the outdoors also offering natural resources to develop their imagination and creative expression.  Natural resources and a variety of creative media such as clay, gloop and foam are used on a daily basis.

It is our aim for every child to enjoy every aspect of every day they spend with us.  To this end we encourage learning through play.  We use water, sand, mud and other mediums.  Through playing by pouring, lifting, measuring, handling and balancing, they will absorb many different concepts including linguistic and mathematical. The indoor climbing frame supports childrens gross motor skills while the cosy den is a perfect place to spend soem quiet time.

Meal times continue to be a sociable occasion with the children beginning to lay the tables, serve their own food and use a knife and fork.  These simple tasks along with pouring their own drinks builds their hand and eye co-ordination.

Group sessions introduce structure to the day with story times, music groups, number games and group art and creative activities.
