They will be taught through games and play. The areas of learning include:

In addition to the EYFS framework, the Maria Montessori approach is also a key teaching area to ensure that learning is robust and all encompassing

Outdoor Learning
At Bowine International School, we believe that outdoor learning is an important part of a good childhood and also important in rasing standards within the school. We will embark on a programme to develop exciting outdoor spaces that can be used throughout the school day including an outdoor classroom, raised beds for planting vegetables, willow tunnels, and so much more. Teachers will use the extensive grounds to integrate outdoor learning within their topic plans right across the curriculum
Sports & Extra Curricular
There are a wide range of extra curricular activities as well as sports for children of all ages before, during and after school. Details of clubs on offer are sent out at the beginning of each term
