he Little Vic is our pre-school class for girls aged 3-4 and, from September 2021, will be the entry point for the Old Vicarage School. Girls are given the option of full days or half days for the first two terms and by the third term we expect all girls to be attending full day sessions to prepare them for life in Reception. The Little Vic is situated just around the corner from the main school in the Vineyard Life Church and girls will have the opportunity to come up to the main school twice a week for library and PE lessons and also to experience life in a Reception classroom.
The safe and stimulating environment at the Little Vic will enable the girls to develop both their mental and physical confidence away from their parents for the first time. The girls will be assigned a key-worker who will act as a form tutor during their time at the Little Vic and will be the first point of contact for all parental questions. Our high pupil-to-staff ratio means that the girls will be able to cultivate close bonds with their teachers, which will foster their feeling of safety and develop their love of learning. Through a mix of exploration, games, investigations and more formal learning sessions, the girls will be covering the basics of phonics, reading, number and geometry. They will also be taught science, geography, history as well as weekly specialist lessons in PE, Music, French and Art.
The Little Vic’s curriculum is intended to give the girls all the skills they need in order to be confident learners by the time they move into Reception. Daily yoga and fine motor play will develop both gross and fine motor control, essential for early writing. Philosophy, circle times and Show and Tell will encourage speaking, listening and understanding.
Frequent PSHE lessons, role-play and modelling will equip the girls with the personal, social and emotional skills to engage fully in school life.
