Welcome to Early Years at Woodside Academy!
In early years we love to learn through play! This means you will often see us engaging in challenges, role play, hands on cooking, art projects, science experiments and much more. We learn through a careful balance of child-initiated play and adult directed activities. Staff encourage children to follow their own interests and explore their own ideas in play, whilst extending and supporting their learning. Running alongside this, we have an overarching topic each half term. See below photographs of learning from our current early years classes.
