The youngest students of Gad’s Hill have explored the school’s extensive grounds, looking for the first signs of Autumn.
The three to four year-olds rambled from Charles Dickens’ orchard, where the Nursery is set, to Gad’s Hill’s very own Forest School and playing fields, foraging for acorns and leaves.
As well as teacher-led play experiences such as baking, cutting and collaging, the children spend time enjoying plenty of free-flow play. Today’s nature trail helped strengthen communication and fine motor skills and encourage independence.
Regular Nursery activities include performing arts workshops in the school’s theatre, where the classmates learn how to express themselves through music and movement, mentored by our specialist drama and dance teacher.
Together, the youngsters take part in fun interactive sessions designed to enhance their social, mental and physical development, as well as strengthen social interaction and language skills.
The school’s littlest learners are now tucking-in to roast beef or Quorn with Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and seasonal vegetables, followed by Tina’s homemade cupcakes and fruit, all served by Gad’s Hill catering team in the air-conditioned dining hall.
