Elementary

The Elementary reception class at Kendale is a happy and caring environment where each child is encouraged to express his/her own ideas. Through play and work the children develop their communicative, linguistic, social and emotional skills. Working together they learn to share, cooperate and make choices.

To develop their literacy skills they listen to stories and memorise songs, rhymes and poems.

Cognitive and numeracy skills are enhanced with hands-on mathematical materials such as Numicon and Cuisenaire rods.

Our child-centered rich programme enables each individual to develop their abilities in music and movement, gymnastics, art and crafts, cookery and science. Each individual is nurtured and stimulated so that they grow in confidence and self-esteem.
