“The Early Years Foundation Stage is good. The activities are well planned using accurate knowledge about children’s individual abilities.” OFSTED
Oak Class enjoyed a wonderful day in the woods with some teddy bear friends. Despite the hot weather they were busy making ponds and shelters, searching for bears and using all their senses to explore the woodland: smelling herbs, listening to birds and grasshoppers, and making teddy paw prints in clay. Their enthusiasm, good manners and enjoyment made all the staff very proud - what wonderful Woodcote woodland ambassadors.
