This week has been all about shapes, we are continuing this theme next week too! So there has been lots of spotting activities, we’ve been for a walk around the village spotting shapes and taking photos, we spotted shapes in the coop when we went to buy snack, and played lots of games finding different shapes. The children have enjoyed lots of craft activities that involve shapes – many that Diane has provided. Helena has done several music and movement sessions this week with the children; we often use the songs from the Sticky Kids – they are also available on YouTube so you too can do the ‘Funky Monkey’ song at home! Just search for the Sticky Kids. Hayley has shared stories and rhymes with the children; Jack and the flum flum tree has been a firm favourite all week with lots of opportunities to spot shapes in the pictures!
I have looked at Remembrance day with the children as many of them have talked about their family members wearing poppies, we have made playdough red poppies and discussed what the children feel the poppy means to them and their families. Cbeebies have produced a short animation that is intended to introduce children to theme of Remembrance day, we have shared this with the children today.
If you wish to watch it with them the link is http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/poppies
Thank you to everyone who has sent in their family photos for the display it’s starting to look great!
Have a good weekend everyone and don’t forget our AGM is on Monday 7pm at Pre-school; it’s an opportunity to hear about what has been going on over the past academic year and what lies ahead for Pre-school. We are always looking for committee members as without a committee Pre-school could not open, if you have any questions please speak to a member of the committee or staff.
