At Anston Brook Primary School we want children to be happy, confident and to develop a real thirst for learning.
We provide them with a safe and stimulating environment in which to learn and explore and aim to foster children’s individual wants, needs and interests in order to enable them to get the most out of their experiences.
Children have lots of opportunities to facilitate their own learning through carefully resourced provision areas and adults support children through high quality interactions that challenge thinking and extend learning.
Through play-based learning and topics we endeavour to provide each child with a range of opportunities which stimulate their creativity and support their development based on their likes and interests.
We value the importance of the outdoor environment, including the wonderful fosrest school surroundings, in order to enable children to develop their thinking, problem solving and collaborative working skills.
Collaborative Play Outdoors
Through creativity children begin to make sense of their world, and to connect with others.
It is not just about painting and music, it is about thinking imaginatively, being resourceful and seeing potential for imaginative play in everyday objects.
At Anston Brook Primary School we allow children the opportunity to explore and to play without imposing on them our own ideas and anticipated outcomes.
The outdoor area is stocked with large wooden blocks and other equipment which allows children to explore their imagination and express their ideas, thoughts and experiences in a collaborative way.
As the children progress through the year they learn to communicate their ideas with their peers, express themselves effectively and appropriately and share the resources on offer.
They also learn new and innovative ways of joining and fixing objects together and in time use their developing literacy skills to enhance their creations and further communicate their thoughts and ideas.
