Classwork at Finberry

We believe that expecting our 5-year-old children to settle down to formal lessons as soon as they move into Year 1 is wrong. We passionately believe that young children learn best through play and exploration and therefore follow a ‘Continuous Provision’ method to ensure that children experience a smooth transition into more formal teaching. This results in happier, more engaged children, who are able to develop a lifelong love of learning.
