As it is currently the World Cup, we have had a football themed week at preschool. The children have enjoyed playing football, football themed air hockey and table football. We have also looked at different flags and spoke to the children about where they are from or where in the world they have family living.
We love to bake at preschool! This week we made cheese scones. The children were so helpful with weighing out and mixing all of the ingredients.
All about babies 👶🏻
This week the children enjoyed a baby themed week. They brought in photos of themselves as babies to show each other, bathed and cared for dolls and we even had a visit from a real baby!
Pirate Week 🏴☠️
The children enjoyed dressing up as pirates, making their own ships and created maps to find the treasure.
Feelings and colour!
We have been looking at The Colour Monster story, focussing on different feelings and colours.
Bonfire week at preschool 🔥
This week we have had bonfire/firework theme. The children have used paint and collage to make their own firework pictures, created their own firework biscuits using icing pens and we even had a role play campfire so that we could talk about fire safety, whilst pretending to roast a real marshmallow (which they got to each as a treat!).
For Halloween we had a dress up party and the children took part in a range of themed activities, such as apple bobbing and scavenger hunt.
This week in preschool we have been learning about Diwali. The children created clay diya lamps, made coconut burfi sweets, tried some Indian snacks, decorated rangoli patterns and doilies and loved exploring the different themed trays we had set up in the environment. We would like to wish anyone celebrating Diwali on the 24th a happy and blessed day, we hope you have a lovely time 😊
This week we have had a farm themed week, leading on from the interests children had last week during Harvest. The children have engaged with a range of activities such as exploring the small world sensory farm tray, completing various puzzles and matching games and farm arts and crafts!
This week we have been celebrating Harvest at preschool. The children have joined in with different leaf art, cut vegetables which we used to make soup, explored a sensory Harvest themed tray and play dough. We even made our own bread rolls! We also took a walk to the church to look at the Harvest display and had a sing song with Mother Nicole.
