Barbies Coastal Explores

Coastal Explores is back! The coastal sessions will make use of local natural space’s as part of our outdoor learning experiences supporting the Nursery curriculum, particularly focusing on exploring the world in which we live, our local community, taking care of the environment, developing language, early mathematics and arts.

The sessions have a strong emphasis on raising all children’s self-esteem and confidence; children can make connections in their learning and come to understand how we look after ourselves, each other and any place where we play.

These sessions are held once a week for small groups of children on a rota basis (Yellow, Forest and Red class). Children will visit our local coastland in small groups.

Barbies Maurice Minors @ Maurice House Royal British Legion

Before Covid we had built a strong link with Maurice House in Broadstairs as part of our intergenerational project. We have developed a lovely relationship with the residents and we are very pleased to announce that we will returning after the Easter break.

Our school leavers will visit Maurice House in small groups. They will engage in different types of activities with the residents such as yoga, Lego, small world play, nature walks, fun and fitness ball activities, music and singing and baking.

The outcomes for the children are very positive with improvements in language development, greater self-esteem and confidence, development of empathy, wellbeing, and supporting children with anxiety.

The focus on intergenerational project is also for the benefit of the residents, such as tackling loneliness and isolation to improving health, care and quality of life. By playing and reading with children, the elderly are less likely to suffer loneliness.
