From building castles to mud kitchens and sing-a-longs, we make learning fun and natural.
Observation and Record Keeping
The work we do in school is based on the needs of the children, i.e. we start assessing the child’s learning needs and then provide appropriate experiences to develop his/her own understanding.
Individual records are kept on all the children. They contain information from parents, children’s views, written and photographic observations of the children’s achievements, information about development of skills and competencies, dated samples of work, and individual learning plans. Each child has one member of staff who is responsible for these records, and for sharing information with parents on a regular basis.
During the year members of staff will share progress and individual learning plans with parents. When children transfer to primary school a summary of progress is written and shared with parents. A copy is then sent on to the receiving school.
