What is a Shadow?

Can you measure a shadow? Using an outside space or near a window watch a shadow during the day, how does it change?  


Shadow stories- Can you make shadows with your bodies to re-enact and tell some stories or nursery rhymes? Can you be an animal?  A giant? A monster?


Shadow tracing- using some coloured chalks in an outside space or paper, pens and a torch inside can you trace around some shadows? Can you trace around some of your favourite toys or even yourself?

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which uses continuous play and exploration to learn. Adults plan both adult led and child initiated activities that enable the children to develop social skills, self confidence and independence in a range of contexts. 


At Ash Grange we encourage our children to get messy and have fun outside in all weathers therefore we ask that your child is dressed in appropriate clothing suitable for the various activities and all weathers.


Please remember in case of accidents and wet play all children need

  • a spare set of clothes and pants which remain at school
  • Wellies
  • No laces on shoes, velcro fastenings are ideal for this age.

ParentZone (I-Connect) is a communication app for Early Years Families, to share targets, progress and achievements in their Learning Journey. Parents can use this to share achievements at home. Families are provided with a unique password which they set up once at
