As part of the transition from Early Years to Year 1, children in Year 1 participate in COOL time - Continuing Our Own Learning, during the afternoon sessions.
This is a progressive step from the continuous provision of free flow in Reception to a more formal learning environment and timetable at the end of Year 1.
Practical, play-based and creative activities are planned for each area of the curriculum, and the children are able to choose between them and adapt them as their own. The environment includes a role play area and the activities match the theme and learning taking place within the classroom.
Over the course of the year the structure and expectations of COOL time adapts to suit the needs of the children, as they develop their learning skills. This may be different each year depending on the needs of the cohort.
