Schools starts early for our Early Years Classes. They come and join us at the age of 3 and from then they’re part of the Dreghorn family. Early Years is great fun; we play all day and do you know we are actually learning. Our learning is called experiential this is because we learn with every experience we encounter.
The ladies that help us in the Early Years class work hard to make sure that learning is always fun and they try to change what we are doing on a regular basis.
We are really lucky here at Dreghorn that we have our own woodland area. This means we can explore the great outdoors without fear of getting lost! When we head out into the woods we can learn so many things by exploring the real life nature around us.
OUTDOOR LEARNING AND EXPERIENCES
As well as using the woodland walk area we also have a great outdoor space to play in. Recently we have added more natural produces to play with; things likes pipes and wooden blocks, palettes and cogs. These have been very exciting to use as we have experimented by stacking, rolling and building. It’s exciting to see what we can use them for especially when we work as a team.
GYM HALL GAMES
We have an amazing gym hall here at Dreghorn and we love to go in it and have a run around. We learn all about space, movement, balance whilst having a great time!
