Learning and Development

Membury Pre-school is a governor run pre-school based in membury Primary School. Children learn through a variety of play opportunities that are matched to their learning and development needs.  The reception class offers more focussed learning opportunties including literacy, numeracy, knowledge and understanding of the world and creative arts. The children have access to a large outside space that is used for role-play. It is a very versatile space that can be anything from a fairy tale cottage to a jungle! Children have the opportunity to learn inside and outside the classroom through a wide range of activities and resources. The children are able to move freely between all the spaces where members of staff are able to support them with their specific Learning and Development needs.

The Learning Journey

Each child will have their own individual book called a Learning Journey which is used to track their learning and development across the curriculum. It will include photos and notes explaining the different sorts of activities they do, examples of pictures, mark making and things they create. On a daily basis the adults working with your child will make notes and collect any information that shows specific details of your child’s development. Although the Learning Journeys are kept at school we encourage you to look at them with your child at any time and share in their progress. If you wish to add to the Learning Journeys with photos or information about anything your child does at home it would be much appreciated.
