Discover uniqueness

Within our early years setting, we understand and recognise that each child is unique. Through our diverse curriculum we ensure that the individual needs of the children are met. Through child-led learning, differentiated activities and an abundance of resources, we are able to nurture self-confidence and independence while each child discovers their uniqueness.

Discover the world

Throughout our stimulating environment, children’s natural curiosity becomes ignited and they are inspired by the enjoyment of discovery. By tapping into specialist teaching, children experience a number of sporting activities, language opportunities and outdoor forest adventures.

Learn

Learning creativity

Enabling a child to let their imaginations go as far as they can. We do not believe in setting barriers and encourage children to be as creative as they want to be. For some children this comes naturally, and others need encouraging to tap into their creative minds and discover their interests and what they enjoy. Creativity is the key to unlocking and building confidence and leads to the ability to focus on their academic success as well.

Learning inclusivity

Each child is respected and valued as a growing individual and can show kindness and compassion. We encourage each child to be unique and respect each other’s differences.

Learning to learn

Within our gentle and nurturing environment, it is here that children learn to learn. Through project based learning and extensive resources, children are able to learn through their own experiences and exploration, discovering and growing their own abilities along the way.

 

 

Forest School

This unique experience is born from the principle that children benefit greatly from the learning opportunities inherent in a natural, outdoor environment. Forest School helps children to grow in confidence as a result of the freedom, time and space they are given to explore, create and grow in an outdoor setting. With other benefits such as physical fitness, mental health and learning by experience.

With sensory walks, foraging, nature art, shelter building and hunting for mini beasts, children at Wisbech Grammar School benefit greatly from taking part in our Forest School activities.
