Busy Bees is our afternoon Nurture group. The group is led by our Learning Mentor Annie Goddard and Learning Support Assistant Christine Farren. Busy Bees takes place Monday - Thursday afternoons, in our specially designed Nurture room, for a group of Key Stage 1 children. The Nurture group leaders follow 6 main principles:
Children's learning is understood developmentally.
The classroom offers a safe base.
Nurture is important for the development of self-esteem.
Language is understood as a vital means of communication.
All behaviour is communication.
Transitions are significant in the lives of children.
