Welcome to Goldfinches!

(See www.foundationyears.org.uk for more info.)
In Goldfinch class we have a balance of both adult led activities and child initiated learning. These sessions take place both indoor and outdoors.
In Goldfinch class we are explorers, adventurers, risk takers, problem solvers, artists and much, much more!
We are passionate about being outdoors and connecting children to their natural environment. We understand how important it is for our children to connect with the natural world, especially now, at a time when words such as: acorn, buttercup and kingfisher have been taken out of the oxford dictionary, only to be replaced by broadband, cut and paste and analogue.
In view of this, all of our topics are science based. We investigate and learn all about British birds, trees, mini-beasts and mammals getting outside to observe first hand as often as possible.
