More all About Me
This week we have been busy planting flowers in our preschool garden and talking about how to look after them, the children also enjoyed making a dinosaur world in our large tyre, and sun catchers from some old CD's. Our bug hotel is getting busy with lots of insects looking for somewhere to stay and the children are enjoying looking at the different bugs.
We had our first PE lesson in the school hall and this was received with lots of positive feed back from the children, who absolutely loved it. We encouraged the children to talk about the effects of exercise on their body and encouraged them to climb, jump etc safely.
Following the children's interests they helped us to make a Woodland Den inside which they filled with lots if animals, We then read the story "Ridiculous" and talked about hibernation.
Over the last few weeks we have been introducing the children to lots of different malleable resources, such as, shaving foam, corn flour dough, pasta, play doh and shredded wheat allowing them to touch,smell and explore different textures. The cornflour dough was a big hit. You might like to try making this at home, it is so easy and very therapeutic. Simply add cold water to a few spoonfuls of cornflour.We did this on trays sitting at a table.
Just a reminder to bring back your library books on your child's allotted day so that they can choose another one. If you are not sure which day is your library day please ask your child's key worker.
Welcome to all our new families and welcome back to those that were with us last term. The preschool team are very excited to get to know all the children and have been very impressed at how well they have all settled so far. Our first topic is All about Me, this will help us in getting to know all the children through some fun and exciting activities.
