A Day In the Junior Department

As at Woodlands Nursery, a day in the Junior Department combines a mixture of child-initiated learning and adult directed activities, giving our children a variety of stimulating, exciting and engaging opportunities, to ensure they have every opportunity to explore and develop their learning experiences.

Beyond core numeracy and literacy skills, pupils also enjoy music, swimming, physical education and a foreign language; specialist teaching is an important focus in the Junior Department and each week the children are taught French, Drama, Dance, Music, and PE by some of our specialist teachers.

Typical days in Reception and Years 1 and 2 are shown below:
