Today we joined the ‘RSPB Let Nature Sing Takeover’ bringing bird song to millions of people around the UK. At preschool we talked about birds, where they live and what they eat. Yesterday we made bird feeders in preparation for today. The children listened to the bird song on the RSPB app and used their imaginations role playing at being birds swooping and flying. If you would like to get involved and support the RSPB project please look at their Facebook page or http://www.rspb.org.uk
We are always looking to embrace the amazing things our children do and one of the ways we have decided to do this is by having a Wow Wall for the children to display their work. We would love it if you came and had a look when you drop off and talk to your children about their work.
We also have a new Parents Information board and will keep this updated with Pre School information and information from West Sussex County Council.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful vegetables we had today! Look how much fun we had making and eating our own soup and toast! The children enjoyed chopping and preparing and learning about the different vegetables. They then buttered their own toast. They do this a lot at pre school and have all been doing so well!

Tomorrow we will be making soup with the children for snack so if your children could bring in a vegetable to go into the soup instead of fruit that would be wonderful! Thank you! 🍲
On Monday we made biscuits and went for a walk around the village. We went to the church and did wax rubbings on the different textures and then collected lots of autumn bits to bring back to pre school. On Tuesday we went to the harvest festival with the school. The children were all amazing and made us very proud! On Wednesday the children made their own sandwiches for snack time and coach Ollie came in. On Thursday we had lots of fun dressing up and looking at the hungry caterpillar.
Tomorrow we will be taking the children to church during pre school. The church are collecting items for the Foodbank so if you have any tins or packets you would like to donate we will take them with us!
