Project based Learning 

INTENT

The Nurture room is designed to be a bridge between home and school. A place where children can feel safe and secure. 

The group will be kept small, no more than 6 students, its composition is carefully thought out to create a balanced and functional group. The purpose is to offer students opportunities to revisit early learning skills and promote and support social and emotional development.  Students are considered for the Nurture group dependent on the individual needs .

 

IMPLEMENTATION

Students will follow a structure and routine which includes group listening and speaking, work tasks, individual and shared play, social skills group sessions. The students will have the opportunity to share good news, explore thoughts and feelings and work collaboratively on practical tasks.

Students will work with new peers regularly encouraging cooperation and confidence. Within the sessions, opportunities are tailored to meet the needs of the particular group and age range. Outdoor learning is a key part of the sessions. Children will learn how to prepare snacks together and the opportunity to try new foods is offered on a daily basis, allowing them to cook their own snacks, encouraging effective communication with each other and to learn and share new experiences .
