The Den is the base for our Nurture Group.
Nurturing is about encouraging the development of a child in a safe, predictable environment and routine.
The Den is effectively structured to allow children to develop a range of social and/or emotional skills.
Each session follows the same structure; it begins with mindfulness, followed by key skills and child initiated learning.
There are opportunities for individual and shared play and social activities. The children also enjoy a drink and a snack.
This term KS1 have been looking at Waterside's 5 Golden Rules. The children discussed why it is important to have rules in and outside of school. Year 1 posed for photographs which they thought best represented the Golden rules. ' We look after property. If you don't, things will break and you won't be able to use them again.'Lily
' We are kind. It's nice to be kind to people.' Harvey
'We have to let other children learn, it's not nice to distract other people.' Ami
