Every Thursday Morning we are lucky enough to have our own sports coach called Rico, who runs sessions for the children to encourage them to exercise. Rico makes the sessions really fun for the children with a range of different activities, from parachute games, throwing and catching games and running games. All these activities not only encourage the children's fitness levels but also support them with their listening and attention, their communication and counting, plus much more. Rico is very patient and understanding for children that may need extra support, he ensures that that games are differentiated and that all children feel comfortable participating in the games.
We can clearly see on the children's faces and through excitement, just how much they love Rico visiting us here at The Patch.
Every fortnight we are greeted by the Sandwell Library Bus Service. We are welcomed upon the Library Bus and are read books by the lovely library team. The children are then able to loan some books from our local library service and bring them back to The Patch. These stories are then read to the children at group time daily.
