Musical Bumps takes place in the nursery once a month where children have the opportunity to take part in top quality friendly music classes with traditional songs and lullabies, musical games and percussion from around the world. The sessions are carefully planned to support each stage of development looking at children’s social skills, early literacy and numeracy, school readiness and those all-important musical skills too!
The children at Sawston Nursery value individuals within our community and our Pre School children visit the nearby Residential Home, Orchard House regularly. We are able to share different activities such as Yoga Sessions, Craft Activities and Social Interactions with the residents and sometimes we stay for afternoon tea making a difference in other people’s lives.
Outdoor Learning Environment
Research informs us that children and young people are stimulated by the outdoors and typically experience, over time an increase in their self-belief, confidence, learning capacity, enthusiasm, communication and problem solving skills. The children at Sawston Nursery are able to access the outdoor learning environment on a regular basis and children are able to undertake a range of practical activities and carry out small achievable tasks. Team working is encouraged and also children develop their independent learning creating a lifelong relationship with natural spaces.
