We spend a lot of time outside in our wonderful school grounds riding bikes, climbing on equipment, mixing magical potions and building camp fires. This provides children with the opportunity to develop team working skills, communication, physical skills and most importantly the time to be a child in a safe and secure environment. We run 'Wild Tribe' and 'Wellie Walks' sessions every week. This is planned time in the school grounds where we build dens, camp-fires for cooking and develop bush skills in a safe environment.
At South Petherwin we teach children to read using a scheme called 'Read, Write inc.' Every day we learn a new sound and then use that sound in our writing. This scheme has proven itself to be a very effective teaching programme and children leave the Foundation stage confident readers.
We hope you and your child are very happy at South Petherwin School. We love our school and hope you do too. If you need any additional information about the Foundation Stage at South Petherwin, please feel free to contact us.The Year F Team.
