What’s special at Little Battlers?
In the main room we have 3 computers with flat screens for the children to practice their fine motor skills. We have a lovely kitchen and each week for half a term at a time, the children make lots of yummy foods which they then all eat at snack time. Yummy!
Trips - We go on two trips a year, one in the Autumn term and one in the Summer term.
Makaton signing - All the staff are trained to sign and we use this with all of the children incidentally throughout the sessions. We have a special room which we call “The Learning Den” and in this room, we have an interactive white board. Every session different groups use the room to do the register, calendar and have some small group time to talk, share ideas and learn together. We also now have a “Role Play Room” which works on a banded system. Six children at a time can use this room for dressing up, using their imagination, and staff can work with very small groups or children on a one to one basis. During each session we use a snack bar system. The children learn to wash their hands before accessing a drink and a piece of fruit when they are ready, so play is not interrupted and the children can help to get the tables ready by putting out the cups, milk cartons and bowls of fruit.
