On Monday afternoon many of our September leavers visited Mrs Arter at Langham Primary School with their parents as part of their transition into Reception Year. Children will be joined by Nicola next Monday afternoon when they have a further visit to Reception Class.
This week we have shared the stories ‘My Dad is Awesome’ by Nick Butterworth and ‘My Dad is My Hero’ by Dawn Richards and Jane Massey. Children have been very busy making beautiful cards for Fathers Day this Sunday.
This week children have been extremely busy (and messy) exploring in the mud kitchen. There have been lots of mud pies and ‘chocolate cake’ and some children have been noticing change as they mix to combine compost, water, sand and grass.
There has been plenty of opportunity for the children to water the garden and discuss the need for the flowers to have a ‘drink’ with the warm weather continuing. Children have been pouring and measuring when filling and emptying containers in the water tray which support both mathematical language of capacity and hand-eye co-ordination.
The easel continues to be popular with some fabulous pieces of art being produced and mark making taking place.
Following children’s interests, we have made Gingerbread men from salt dough and enjoyed re-telling the traditional tale of the Gingerbread man. We will be painting these and discussing feelings and emotions when drawing faces on our Gingerbread men.
Thank you to parents who have sent in metal tins for our music shed. The new music shed is looking great and children have been exploring sounds by tapping, shaking and banging various metal items.
Next Monday morning we will be joined by Clair Vicary who will be working with the pre-school as a Bank Practitioner, providing cover for permanent staff when required. We would like to say a warm welcome and hope that Clair will enjoy her time with us.
Polite reminder - can children please remember to bring in sunhats, sun-cream and a named water bottle.
