Welcome to Pre-School
We look forward to welcoming all of our existing Pre-School children to a new and exciting school year, we have lots of adventures ahead of us. We also have a large number of new children preparing to join our class and we look forward to meeting them and getting to know them over the coming year. Please keep visiting our web-page to find out about the different learning opportunities we have been exploring.
Week Beginning 18th September 2017
This week we have welcomed Willow, Idris, Aeron, Zackery and Nathan to the Pre-School class. We look forward to getting to know them all and their families over the next few weeks. They have coped really well so far, especially on Friday when we had a very noisy fire drill. The whole Pre-School class behaved beautifully as we joined the rest of the school at the front lawn assembly point.
Our nursery rhyme of the week has been Hickory Dickory Dock. We have found out about different types of clocks and watches during our circle time discussions. Our art and craft activities have focussed on different types of mice. the children have made cone mice with pipecleaner tails, mice from different shape stencils and paper cut-out mice. Alex helped print our clock using poly M shapes dipped in brown paint. Take a look at our display and see if you can spot your mouse, you may even find some hanging around the Pre-School room.
Week Beginning - 11th September 2017
This week we have started to welcome our new intake of children. We have welcomed Beau, Abigail, Alex, Dylan and Louis. Alex and Dylan are already familiar with our Pre-School room having an older sister and brother who have just moved up to the Reception class. All of the children coped extremely well on their first few days with hardly any tears. We look forward to getting to know you and your families over the coming year.
This week we have been exploring the nursery rhyme "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and it's associated alternative "Twinkle Twinkle Chocolate Bar". Our activities have included matching rhyming words, making up new rhyming matches, painting our own interpretations of the songs and decorating stars for our display. Our final treat was being given the opportunity to decorate a biscuit with stars; star shaped icing, star shaped chocolate pieces and star shaped sprinkles. We saved them to eat at home and hope that the children enjoyed eating them as much as they did making them.
Welcome Back - 6th September 2017
