Sandy Lane Nursery and Forest School

September 2018-December 2018



This term the children have been regularly supported to explore our provocation table, inspiring their imaginations and developing new skills-this has led onto sensory cooking sessions, where we use the provocation ingredients and a variety of utensils… this has proven popular at snack time, when the children eat the end product!


We have introduced Sensory Circuit into our daily routine which creates calming 1:1 Support through the use of physical activities, sensory experiences and deep pressure techniques that help the children to feel relaxed, content and focused, ready for the day ahead.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                


We have also embraced our time in Forest School, enjoying our natural surroundings and taking risks outdoors to develop our confidence and gross motor skills.


There have been some amazing trips this term including: our outing to West Vale Care Home where the children could get into the festive spirit with some of the residents, we have eaten a lovely Christmas dinner at the local community café, some of our children were able to pick out our Rainbow Room Christmas Tree from Trebaron Garden Centre, and all of our Rainbow families came to CAFT for the Christmas Party Extravaganza!

Thankyou to all of our children and their families for a wonderful term filled with happiness, incredible achievements and lots of fun!
