The Big Room is a large, bright and cheerful area that accommodates up to 28 children aged 3 to 5 years. It is divided into different play spaces including areas for construction, role play and fancy dress, books and reading, and an area for ‘messy play’ with paint, glue, sand and water.
Children get involved in pre-school activities, such as pre-reading and writing, to help prepare them for school. We cover all areas of the curriculum by organising a variety of activities around a chosen theme. Our planning for what we do in the Big Room follows the early learning goals outlined for the foundation stage by the government for children 3-5 years.
