  • Communicators
  • Investigators

Our FS Team encourage and support the children by:

  • Providing an enabling environment in which children can develop these roles and skills;
  • Providing rich experiences, such as Forest School, multi-cultural visitors and probing life's 'Big Ideas';
  • Growing the vocabulary of our children through the Word Aware approach and quality interactions;
  • Challenging them to move their thinking and learning on to their next step;
  • Providing balanced opportunities to develop through child-initiated, adult-initiated and adult-directed activities.
