Kindergarten

 

Mrs Keryn Neaves Senior Deputy Head Magdalene House Prep School
The first years of a child’s life are when the foundations are laid to pave the way to their educational journey, and at Wisbech Grammar School we aim to provide the best quality Early Years Education for your child.

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 class is a creative environment allowing our pupils to begin their journey towards discovering who they are through exploring, playing and by spending time with enthusiastic and well qualified adults.

By 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.

Why choose Wisbech Grammar School’s Kindergarten or Reception 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

This week during group time, Kindergarten children have been creating their own classroom rules. They have worked together to come up with some fantastic suggestions on how they would like Kindergarten to run and how both the children and adults should act and treat each other. My personal favourite was ‘bring your pet to kindergarten day’ and ‘chocolate with lunch every day.’

On Tuesday morning we had a walk to the Hudson to have a look at where we will be having our swimming lessons and got to meet the swimming staff. We also looked at the changing rooms and finished our walk with a visit to the pirate ship.

Wednesday saw the arrival of our bear cave. As our focus book for this half term is ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’ we decided to create our very own bear cave! The children have loved exploring inside and have been looking after ‘Olaf’ our new EYFS bear.

On Thursday the kindergarten children went on a ‘Bear Hunt’ and found a bear cave at the edge of the filed. As we were walking up to the ‘bear cave’ we heard a ‘growl’ and had to retreat to a safe place. As we were running back we found a teddy bear that looked lost so decided to take him back to kindergarten and look after him. We are currently thinking of a name for him!

On Friday we finished our week with P.E where we enjoyed 6 different obstacles courses. In the afternoon we spent most of our time outside enjoying the sunshine with friends.

We have also started our focus based learning this week which looks at both phonics and maths. During this time, the children have enjoyed sound games including ‘big ears’ which looks at the sounds they can hear in the Kindergarten environment, and outside with  shapes and number games.
