All about Oak Class
At Shoscombe Church School we pride ourselves on our Early Years provision. Reception and Nursery children aged between 3 and 5 are part of Oak Class, creating a wonderful Early Years Unit. We accept children into our Early Years Unit from the term they are three years old and aim to nurture each child’s love of learning and to give each child the best start to their school life.
We have lots of fun playing with our friends, learning practical skills through play based activities, and developing our social skills at every opportunity. We love to learn alongside our friends and explore using our senses. We are curious learners and enjoy asking questions to find out about the world around us. We welcome each child as an individual and look forward to celebrating their successes and achievements, whilst working with families to help children meet their full potential.
Our Curriculum in Oak Class
Our curriculum carefully balances planned adult-led learning experiences with opportunities for children to initiate their own play and explore their own interests and fascinations. Whilst learning, children are encouraged to access all areas available to them throughout the day – the classroom and the two wonderful free-flow outdoor spaces. Forest school takes place one afternoon per week.
All children in Oak Class follow The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (2021) which caters for all children under 5 years of age. For further information on this, please see our EYFS page on the website.
