Answering the call from our parents to extend the provision already on offer, within the Prep section of Wisbech Grammar School, we are excited to announce that our new Kindergarten class opened in September 2018. Our new Kindergarten and Reception class are creative environments allowing our pupils to begin their journey towards discovering who they are through exploring, discovery, learning, and by spending time with passionate and our expert EYFS team.
By also encompassing Kindergarten within our Prep School, we provide parents with the opportunity of experiencing all that Wisbech Grammar School has to offer, that little bit sooner.
Our teaching staff are highly committed to researching current initiatives to ensure we provide an enriching and enabling environment (both indoors and out) in which children can develop and grow. The high level of pastoral care continues as our children grow into young adults throughout their educational journey with us. We endeavour to develop independent, resilient and inquisitive learners, as we believe these skills help set children up for success in life.
The first years of a child’s life are when the foundations are laid to pave the way through their educational journey.
Early Years Curriculum
When children enter our Kindergarten the values of the EYFS curriculum are embraced to provide your child with a stimulating, child-led environment encouraging their thirst for knowledge and understanding of the world.
In the Early Years there are three aspects of the Learning Environment: The Indoor, The Outdoor and The Emotional. In our Kindergarten, we consider all these aspects to be equally important and have developed our learning spaces to encourage independent learning in all areas of the EYFS curriculum.
We believe in an all-round approach to learning where all areas of the environment can support each other and every prime and specific area of the curriculum enhances children’s learning through play and independent choices
Why choose Wisbech Grammar School’s for your child’s Early Years Education?
At Wisbech Grammar School, we focus on the whole child. We offer small classes and highly-trained staff who will care for and nurture your child in a warm and supportive environment. We believe a full education includes music, sport, art and culture alongside the academic subjects; this starts in Kindergarten and extends through to the 6th Form.
We work in partnership with our parents to develop their child’s interests and strengths from their earliest days with us. Our children leave our School as confident and resilient young people with a passion for learning and a broad experience of the world around them.
To truly give your child the best beginning, start their education at Wisbech Grammar School.
‘Our Kindergarten Stars’ by Megan Gillings, EYFS Assistant
Let’s go fly a kite…….
Last week the Kindergarten children enjoyed making their very own kites. They were each given a template of a kite and used their creative imagination to decorate it any way they wanted too with a variety of different materials from felt shapes and coloured stamps to bright feathers.
On Thursday morning they decided to go outside for children to test their kites and were not disappointed, they were amazing! The children enjoyed running up and down the school field to see who could get their brightly coloured kite the highest and Miss Gillings even had a go with flying a kite.
It was a fantastic way to spend a sunny Thursday afternoon.
