Kelpies

Our Kelpies is the room children progress to the year they are due to attend school. Here they gain a deeper understanding of maths and literacy, recognising their own name and exploring their emotions and feelings, developing their communication and listening skills along with self-reliance and independence.

The children participate in activities widening their knowledge and understanding of the world and practising all the skills they will need to head off to ‘big school’ in September. They explore tasks such as getting their own snack, clearing away after themselves at lunch time, taking themselves to the toilet building their confidence knowing that within Blue Sky their voice is heard and they are valued as individuals and encouraged to grow at their own rate.
