Weekly Snack Contribution
Each day we provide your child with a variety of snacks at break time. We provide a range of fresh fruit and vegetables to choose from, plus toast with a choice of spreads. The weekly contribution we ask for towards this provision is £3.
This money also goes towards weekly community visits, café trips and ingredients for cooking.
Please take the time to read through the timetable and topic web below to see how you can support your child's development at home linked to the learning happening at school.

Our classroom environment
Like the other classes at Rosehill we have a suite of rooms, each with a specific purpose:
Also used for snack time.
By structuring our classroom environment, we can reduce the anxiety many of the children experience as a result of being unsure of what is expected of them or what will come next. For instance, they know the type of activities to expect when in the group area and they know our expectations of them e.g. they are expected to sit on their chairs. They are 'cued' into an activity by physically moving to the appropriate area.
This structure extends to our timetable which, although not the same each day, has certain fixed 'points of reference', such as morning 'hello' group, snack time, dinner time, afternoon group. We use a symbolic timetable to give the children a clear visual sequence of their day. Once we have this structure in place, we can introduce gradual variations so that the children become better able to cope with unexpected changes and new experiences.
