The stated aims of the Group are listed under three main headings: Personal, Social and Emotional Development This underpins all the areas - it is about confidence, self-esteem, control, relationships, attitudes and dispositions for learning and a sense of community. Communication, Language and Literacy The majority of this area is about communication , there is a strand for language for thinking, a strand for reading and a strand for writing. Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy This is concerned with the concept of numbers and how it is applied in everyday life, it includes numbers for labels and counting, calculating, shape, space and measured. Fledglings is based at Thorner’s School with its own dedicated playroom - plus lots more facilities.
