18th May 2018 – Weekly update

Dear Parents and Carers

What a sunny week we’ve had.

It was great to see you at the AGM on Tuesday evening and I would like to say a big hello to all our new committee members and a huge thank you to the past committee who is stepping down. It’s also an exciting time of year getting to know new members of the committee and listen to their exciting fundraising ideas and passion in supporting preschool.

Our adult led focus was animals and their babies; children identified farm animals and their babies and matched them together. Children were able to create and paint animals using small brush painting.

Thank you for adhering to the schools request to be considerate at drop off/pick up due to SATs. Due to this we had no PE.

At Forest School this week we listened to the birds and made nest using big wooden tongs as beaks to pick up grass and leaves and used pinecones as eggs. A message from Kate ‘Please ensure you provide long trousers/leggings in their bag and we will get them changed there are some very tall nettles at Forest School…Thank you.’

The children staying in made pizza using a bread roll, choosing their own toppings from sweetcorn, mushrooms and peppers.

In our music session we chose our favourite songs and used a microphone to sing to the group.

On Friday we had our Royal Wedding Tea Party, children dressed in red, white or blue and bought in and made crowns and tiaras, we made bracelets from coloured pasta, and wrote our names on flags. We had party games and finally a tea party snack under the canopy.

Congratulations Harry and Meghan!
