Welcome to our new arrivals at Windsor

We would like to introduce you to the latest addition to our Windsor family. Here are our two guinea pigs. We hope they will be very happy with us.

We know how important having pets is to everyone’s well-being and they provide so many learning opportunities. When we have had ducklings and chicks we have all shared in and loved the experience but have been sad to say goodbye to them, so we decided to get some pets we could keep. Why not pop in and meet them!

We are taking a vote to name them. Please sign up to vote for your favourite names on reception. We will let you know very soon what they will be called.

The Outdoors at Windsor

Our outdoor environment is so important for the children’s learning – we thought we should show it on the website.

The richness of the variety of natural environment – the trees, shrubs, flowers, natural habitats, the different levels, the range of natural surfaces provide a challenging, engaging, open ended satisfying world to be in.

Exploring down the Lane

Today was full of discoveries – from the stripy caterpillars, the beetles, the butterflies, the guinea fowl, the chickens, the pony and of course the horse called Misty

The children have loved being explorers and of course – making their own fire with sticks in the fire pit to make hot chocolate

Thanks for leading all our adventures Sharon

Heavy Work

This week the children have been doing lots of activities that help support their sensory development.

They have been rolling down the hill – that helps develop their sense of balance (posh name is vestibular development) an essential sense that so much of our physical competences sit upon.

They have been climbing trees and using mallets – this we call heavy work. This helps develop their sense of proprioception – where their bodies are in space – again another vital sense we all need. Heavy work trains our brains to know where our body parts are.  Think how important that is for learning and life.

They have also continued their fascination with bug hunting – we are hatching butterflies at the moment too – look out for the photos coming soon
