With growing confidence, and with their own unique personality really coming through, children at this age start to really develop social skills and make lasting friendships. In the Upper Tweenies Room we support these skills by focusing on group activities, indoors and outdoors, offering lots of physical and social interaction. With a room full of curious resources and treasures and a team with a wealth of knowledge, these little Tweenies can spend time developing key skills such as communication and independence whilst fostering that beautiful sense of awe and wonder that our little people already have in abundance.
Upper Tweenies is always buzzing with energy as the children begin their first steps to mainstream education, getting ready to go to Reception at big school. There are opportunities to learn at every turn, including early reading and maths skills, mark-making, imaginative play and ICT, which are reinforced through what we call ‘purposeful play’. Activities and play experiences are planned to ensure each child is challenged and given a chance to learn and develop on an individual basis, whilst having lots of fun of course.
