Ashtead Pre-Prep – First Steps are Flying High

Ashtead pupils enjoy painting on the ground

Mrs James and her team are delighted with the way all the children in First Steps have settled into school as they are really starting to explore their environment with confidence. This half term’s topic ’On the Move’ has caught the children’s imagination as they travel on boats, cars, aeroplanes and even a hot-air balloon in the outdoor learning area. Playing alongside each other is a great way to get to know new friends  and as you can see, painting the nose cone of a rocket is a perfect opportunity.

Play is such an important part of a child’s early development. Playing helps young children’s brains to develop and assists their language and communication skills to mature. It also teaches young children about communication, whilst developing their motor and problem-solving skills. Let’s play!
