Maple Class – Explorers Department

Maple Class is an action-packed, non-stop, fly by the minute and fun learning environment. We are full of energy and just love to explore. Some of our favourite parts of the week are Squiggle Whilst you Wiggle, Hydrotherapy, Rebound Therapy and our pre-phonics communication sessions! We love being outdoors, playing hide and seek and exploring during our Forest School sessions. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and are assessed against the Rainbow Profile, with a play-based, in the moment learning approach following the children’s interests and using children’s ‘Wow Weeks’ to influence our weekly planning. Our aim is to promote as much independence throughout the school day from hanging up our own coats, to feeding ourselves and helping to tidy the toys away. We have a lovely atmosphere with some fantastic wow moments which are celebrated with having a ‘Star of the Week’.
