Welcome to Rainbows!
Rainbow is the nursery class for 3-4 year olds. Children come for half days, either in the morning or the afternoon.
Group teaching takes place on two carpets – the Bear Carpet and the Fish Carpet. For the remaining time, the children take part in guided activities (e.g. making cards) or choose their own activities around the classroom or outside in our own grassed outdoor area.
We have a sand tray, a water table, a home corner, a doll’s house, a book corner and a craft table, as well as areas dedicated to writing, maths, technology and playing with malleable substances such as play dough.
Over the year we explore many topics, such as Festivals, the Seasons, Growth, Holidays, Night Time, and many different Professions. Recently, for example, our children have played at being travel agents in our own Rainbow Travel Agency and this inspired some of the children to arrange the chairs in rows to make their own aeroplane.
Every Thursday, the children take home a book to read with their parents over the weekend and every Tuesday parents and carers are invited to ‘stay and play’ for a few minutes.
Rainbow Times are:
8.50 -11.20 am
12.30 – 3.00 pm
