We are very excited to welcome Cyril the Roman Snail and the Worm Farm to our Preschool family. We love all of our pets and enjoy talking to and watching them whilst learning about their lives. We work together to clean the tanks and feed our animals to ensure they are happy and healthy.
In Pre-School we have some fish and also some stick insects. Did you know that some stick insects can change colour, like a chameleon, depending on the background where they're at rest. We love our stick insects!
World Book Day March 2021
We celebrated World Book Day by sharing our favourite stories with each other. We created hungry caterpillars in the arts and crafts area and using the Maths cubes we looked at how tall our books were. We also created a story drawing characters and their settings. What a wonderful day we had.
The children had lots of fun making their Christingles yesterday morning. Christingle celebrations are named after the Christingles that are lit during the ceremony. Christingles are oranges wrapped in red tape, decorated with sweets, with a candle on the top. Each element of a Christingle has a special meaning and helps to tell the Christian story.
Pre-School have also been getting involved in Science based activities. Recently they did an experiment exploring colour change. We used paints and tissue paper to make pink, purple, brown, green and orange.
Some of our children enjoyed playing in our new loose parts area. The children are able to self select which items they would like to play with and are encouraged to be creative and imaginative when playing.
We had a visitor in Pre-School today; a beautiful dragonfly. We watched a video on Dragonflies and found out what they like to eat and what their natural habitat is like. We then went outside school with Sam and let it go to be with its friends.
We have had to say a very sad goodbye to all of the school starters at their graduation ceremony. We with them all of the best in taking the next step on their school journey.
