Autumn Term Week 2

We have had another lovely week at pre-school, settling into the new routines with our new children and enjoying the autumn sunshine outside. The junk modelling was a big hit with our budding architects and the staff supported the children to follow their own ideas and built castles and hotels outside, using tape and string and painting the boxes too. The children also started to make their own cars so we are working on using their interests and following this up with making more cars and setting up tracks and roads and setting up a garage too.

We will also be learning about healthy foods and how to keep healthy and will be making fruit kebabs, fruit salad, smoothies and bread this week.

Last week the children enjoyed the doctors surgery so much, there are some real future doctors and nurses here! Lots of very caring and gentle children, wrapping bandages around each other and asking how people were feeling. We will keep this role play going again this week and we had great fun using an ipad app that scans your body and shows the layout of the bones on the screen! We made appointments, pretended to be on the phone and made red books for the babies that came to the clinic.

Red circle group learnt about shapes, explored textures and used the back garden for circle time shape hunts and listening and attention games. They also loved the bear hunt story using props and we started to look at our families - please send in your selfies so that we can build our photo wall.

Blue group also learnt about shapes and their properties, talked about the flow of the day at pre-school and had some great story sacks to bring the books alive. They also chatted about their families and drew some wonderful pictures which we will use in our display.

Our green group are flourishing too and getting to grips with activities and our songs and routines. They loved quishing foam and paint in a zip lock bag, they had a tea party together, did some sorting and concentrating activities and used cars with pens to mark make on a big sheet of paper.

We are really pleased with how everyone has settled in and look forward to some of the older children starting Froest School on the 21st/22nd September.
