Dear Parents and Carers

What a busy week we’ve had!

I have to say from all the staff and children a big thank you to Ali, Jacob’s mummy who spent all day Wednesday in our garden. Ali moved the tyres around the front of the setting and weeded and moved some stones to improve the ground in the plot at the back of preschool. Thank You Ali You Are Amazing!

Our adult-led focus activity was planting and growing on the farm. Children had the opportunity to create a picture by printing with produce grown on a farm. Some beautiful pictures were produced. Children have also been decorating a farmer and animals for the big display board.

In PE we played simple team games using a balloon to pass over and through the children’s legs finishing off with what’s the time Mr. Wolf.

On Tuesday and Thursday at Forest School children have been looking for signs of spring, the blossom on the trees and had a go at making their own pictures using charcoal and paint. We also had the dinosaurs in the sand a firm favourite. A message from Kate ‘The sign-up sheet is on the door, please sign up and come and visit us at Forest School, it will be great to see you!’ The children staying in made chocolate rice crispy cakes and planted up some runner beans and peas.

On Wednesday in music time we played the game duck duck goose, the hokey cokey and head shoulders knees and toes.

Our Friday group has been busy planting up our herb garden in between the showers.

A big welcome to Hilary who started this week and again has settled well into the Pre-School routine.
