14th September- Weekly Update

Dear Parents and Carers

A message about the Primary School Carpark.

Please do not drive into the school grounds to drop off your child/children.  The only exception to this would be in a sickness or emergency situation. There is parking nearby on the adjacent roads to the primary school and please beware not to park over resident’s driveways. Thank you.

What a busy week we’ve had!

Our adult led focus this week was bodies and growing. Each child has been making their own little booklet about themselves. The children have been busy exploring colour and paint by painting their hands and feet, lots of counting toes and fingers.  We talked and discussed how old they are, who is in their family and some children have drawn their family in their booklet.

In PE this week we practised our running and listening skills not always easy thing to do together. We introduced sharks and fishes and felt for our heart beats whilst lying on the floor. For PE please could you provide a white polo type t-shirt (easy for children with large heads) navy shorts and plimsolls. For children arriving to the session please could they have their kit underneath their clothes. We have the hall from 1pm and like to make the most of our time there. Thank you.

Kate our forest school supervisor has been in and met the children and talked to them about Oliver bear and how we should dress for the weather. We had a forest school meeting on Thursday for parents to meet Kate. Little forest school starts next week, please provide a bag with wellies (if it’s raining). If its dry sturdy shoes will be fine, a long sleeve top. As the weather gets colder please make sure they have a hat and gloves and a warm fleece or jumper.

In music this week the children joined in with action songs.

Thank you for your donations of fruit and snacks, please keep them coming!

A big thank you to Logan’s family who have built and erected a fantastic busy board in the bat cave. The children love it!

Next week the children will start to take home their favourite bag to share at group time. Please no more than 5 objects in the bag, it could be a photo, toy or favourite book the choice is up to you.

Next week we’re investigating our senses.

Have a good weekend

Kind regards

Preschool staff.
