We are delighted to be able offer prospective new Year R pupils starting school in September 2020 the opportunity to attended a ‘Meadow Taster Session’ at Fairfield Infant School.
We make extensive use of our ‘Meadow’ in school to develop children’s independence, confidence, communication and Language, problem solving, physical development, and collaboration and to give them real experiences of maths and science.
In Year R and Year 1 every class has a half-day in the meadow each week with a variety of learning opportunities including the mud kitchen, climbing trees, shelter building, team challenges, exploring nature, planting, making and fire building. Year 2 also have a half-day in the meadow to enhance their real life experiences across a wide range of curriculum areas whilst developing their learning characteristics such as perseverance and team work.
We have planned some 1 hour sessions from 10.00 - 11.00am on the following dates:
Friday 8th November
Friday 15th November
Friday 22nd November
Friday 29th November
Please contact the school office to book a place on one of the dates. Places are limited to 10 children a session. Children will need to be accompanied by an adult. The sessions will take place in all weathers and the children and adults will need to come dressed appropriately and prepared to get mucky whilst having fun!
