The Busy Butterflies Room

The Over Two’s Room

The room’s are divided into areas of learning including a

  • Book area & mark making
  • Expressive arts & design (consisting of music, painting, drawing and craft)
  • Knowledge area (small world play, construction, ICT and the world around us)
  • Snack area
  • Role play (Dressing up, shop, real food, home corner)
  • Garden (large area for outdoor play that has potion station, mud kitchen, pavillion, art station, sand and water play, loose parts play to enable the children to use their imaginations and support their play)

The children are offered free play and structured activities throughout the session. Each child is monitored and encouraged to reach their full potential at their own pace. Outdoor play provides opportunities to develop their gross motor skills, spatial awareness and problem solving skills. We like to take the children out through out the year to experience the seasons and all types of weather. (Please see new outdoor policy)

During the sessions the children have opportunities for quiet time and stories.

Each child will have a digital learning journal (Famly) of work and observations to help key-workers to monitor their key-child’s development & learning & also share in real time with parents and family members daily routines and activities.

*The children within this room work on the Early Years Foundation Stage which is the national curriculum for children birth to the end of the school reception year.*
