14th June 2019-Weekly Update

Dear Parents and Carers

What a wet week we’ve had! But it hasn’t stopped us from having lots of fun!

We would like to wish all those wonderful Daddies a Happy Father’s Day for Sunday.

A special welcome to Florie and her family who started this week. We hope you enjoy your time with us and look forward to getting to know you and your family.

The children have been busy this week either making a father’s day card or making trains with junk modelling. Lots of painting, sticking and mark making.  All very industrious!

In PE this week we practised our listening skills. Listening to the instruction and moving like different animals. We also practised our very fastest running. I can confirm all the children can run very fast!

In our music session this week we had the bells out. Children sat in a circle and all chose their favourite song to sing accompanied by the tuneful bells.

At little Forest School this week we had colour mixing (very popular), leaf rubbing and using treasure maps. At big Forest School we made either a log dog or log cat, giving them names and taking them for a walk around forest school. We had maps and the water chute. Children used spoons and pots to pour water down the chute seeing what could float and move with the volume of water. We also had lots of fun on the horse pretending to ride to the ice-cream shop!

Please can you let us know if your contact or collection details have changed. We need to abide by our policies and procedures. Don’t forget to let us know if your child is not attending the session. You can call us on 01491 875036 or email if it’s easier. Thank you for your cooperation.

The children have been super busy learning the songs and actions to our farewell concert.

Eloise has been in to start taking photos of the children for a Leaver’s montage.

Dear Parent and Carers

Welcome back and hope you’ve all had a lovely half term break.

Please can you check your child’s hair, there has been lots of scratching and follow the NHS guidelines for nits on    -thank you.

What a fun week we’ve had!

Our adult led focus this week has been air and space. Children have been busy making named rockets and cutting and sticking spaceships and astronauts. There has been lots of talk about what you find in the sky and in space.

Our music session on Tuesday was great fun. The children played party games such as musical chairs, musical statues, simple Simon and lots of dancing.

We were at little forest school on Wednesday where children used scarves. There was running and throwing them in the air and using them as blanket to pretend to be either sleeping tigers/dinosaurs or bunnies. Children practising weaving with willow to make a hanging wreath. At big forest school we practised our fire circle rules, played on the horse and in the pirate’s ship and used treasure maps to explore the environment.

On Friday what a wet day, but the children made the most of it exploring the properties of water! With lots of filling and emptying buckets using the rain water, mixing to make soup, pies and curries. In the afternoon we practised our letter sounds in our name.

Dates and Reminders
