At the Alice Smith School, children learn through play-based learning experiences planned around their interests, curiosities and their natural quest for knowledge; leading to inquiry, investigations, discovery and hands-on exploration.
In the Early Years Foundation Stage in Pre-school and Reception, your child will learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking, which takes place both indoors and outdoors. “When a child plays they have no fixed agendas, no preconceived objectives that they are trying to cover, and there are no limitations to what they can achieve,” says the school’s Reception Leader, Mrs Robinson.
While your child plays, they’re exploring, hypothesising, experimenting and discovering, giving their little minds a chance to think out complex ideas without really even knowing they’re doing so. Through play, your child will develop skills such as problem-solving, creativity, collaboration, social interaction, concentration and self-confidence.
Each child is viewed as infinitely capable and intelligent.
Offering daily specialist lessons in PE, Music & Movement, Swimming and library lessons, Alice Smith’s highly skilled teachers provide a personalised curriculum for every child, designed to be flexible enough to follow your child’s unique needs and interests.
As children move to Year 2, they continue to offer opportunities for children to learn through play to ensure a smooth transition while also introducing more whole class teaching alongside small group teaching.
