Learning Areas

Communication Friendly Setting-

We are working towards becoming Communication Friendly Setting and have been working hard  on making our environment better, by differentiating  for children age/stage of development and also providing children with a rich variety of resources to stimulate their play and their holistic development.

This is a selection of pictures, from this half term that shows the resources available to your child.

Auntie Lin’s 60th Birthday

Yesterday we had the pleasure of celebrating Auntie Lin’s 60th Birthday! Auntie Lin was showered with gifts from staff old and new and some of our lovely parents also brought gifts in. Auntie Lin’s wants to say a big THANK YOU to you all!

 

 

Smarties Fundraiser

Thanks to all the parents who took part in the Smarties fundraiser! With your support and generosity we managed to raise £206, preschool doubled this to £400 and bought some lovely new resources. 6 Talking tiles for letters and sounds activities and 2 huge sets of soft play building shapes for the outside area, that the children have absolutely loved, including the box!

New and Exciting Actvities

In the past few months we have introduced a pulley system and the children enjoyed lifting heavy buckets above their heads. We have been experimenting with ingredients and made real Volcanoes, that actually erupted!!

We have also been looking after the wildlife and attempted to make a squirrel dray after the children went on the autumn nature walk and fed the squirrels.

 

Visitors to preschool

Over the last few months we had several visitors, from the dental hygienist came Dotty, who shared good oral health practice with the children and gave us all a tooth brush and toothpaste.

We had a visit from Henrietta, our Easter chicken who judged the Easter Bonnet parade and chose 3 winners from amongst the lovely creations.
