The Winchmore Preschool - Early Years & Discovery
The Early Year and Discovery Studio
The Early Years Studio is usually a hub of learning when you enter, with children playing in small or large groups. We want children to have fun in this room and to want to learn. All of the adult led activities are planned with a purpose, to promote the children’s early literacy, mathematical, science and technology skills.
Activities are led by a qualified Early Years teacher who has generally had experience of teaching in a reception class. Age appropriate activities are planned for each session based around children’s needs, interests, talents and abilities. So, for our two to three-year olds the activities will be a gentle introduction, whilst for three- and four- year olds they will be planned to help prepare them for the next steps such as going to school.
The studio is divided up into a Literacy, a Mathematics a Science and a Technology area with the appropriate interesting equipment to support learning. There is always a mark making area with interesting and varied tools, a quiet reading area and specific activities planned to support phonics and introduce children to poems, rhyme and to encourage children to speak in groups .Activities are planned to develop numeracy, an understanding of measure, patterning and shape and space.
It’s a place to perform safe, smelly and messy experiments and to learn about the world around us. Our children are introduced to many forms of ITC, technology and design including computers, electronic touch screens, educational software, communications, robotics, architecture and engineering. The Early Years and Discovery Studio is a place where children can ask questions, try things out, estimate and propose theories, plan and implement activities of their own choice too.
We make no promises that any children will leave us being able to write words or read but those that have an interest and who are able will do.
