Activities and Themes

Old School Playgroup follows a broad theme based curriculum developed to build  a range of practical skills, learning and  social behaviour. A new theme is introduced each half term and the children have the opportunity to try out creative activities, music and singing, stories and puzzles all linked to the theme. Each child is supported by The Green Ladies to work at their own pace and they are encouraged to choose different activities.


Our themes have included:



Everyone is Different

    • All about me – the children celebrate their diversity  and explore new cultures;


Eric’s Books

    • Based on the books by Eric Carle – lots of fun with The Hungry Caterpillar and other story favourites;


The Earth

    • An exciting look at our world and a celebration of Earth Day;


Bible Stories

    • An opportunity for the children to learn about Creation, Noah’s Ark, The Good Samaritan, Daniel in the Lion’s Den and other stories with a moral;


Caring for our Animals

    • How can we care for our pets? The children look at mini beasts and different types of pets.We will learn about caterpillars and look at their growth and development.



    • A trip back in time to prehistoric creatures, explored through art, stories and website research.
