This week our theme was, ‘Food’. During the week, we talked about our favourite food and what makes a balanced healthy diet. Using the food pyramid we sorted food into green (healthy food we can eat lots of e.g. vegetables…), yellow (healthy food we eat a bit less of e.g. cheese, milk…) and red (food that is not healthy but we can eat once in a while e.g. cakes, sweets…). We also talked about where the food comes from before it arrives in our cupboards and shops! The children sorted...

This week our theme was ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. In morning circle we told a little bit of the story each day and reached the grand finale on Friday. The children painted beanstalks and added photos of themselves climbing a magical beanstalk to an imaginary land. We shared ideas of what places we would like to visit, including lands full of unicorns, dragons and limitless ice-cream. Some of the beans we planted a couple of weeks ago have grown so well we have planted them in paper pots...

This week was a ‘wheelie’ great week! (sorry!) On Monday the children brought their scooters to kindergarten and we spent the morning scooting up and down, turning corners and weaving in and out of cones. On Thursday the children took their bikes, balance bikes or scooters to the local playground, where we had a bit more shade. We were very impressed with the children’s balance, control and coordination. Well done! Looking forward to the summer party, the children chose ‘Zog’ by Julia...

On Thursday we had an exciting visit to the Police Station. The Policewoman showed us the offices and the jail. Everyone had chance to try different police hats and coats. We also sat inside a police van. Suncream The sun has arrived! As it is sometimes very hot by the afternoon, when possible we will play outside in the mornings. Please can you put sun cream on your child in the morning before Kindergarten and bring a sun hat (sunglasses optional!). We will put more sun cream on if we go out...

This week we started to plant some beans. We looked at some runner beans, soya beans and sugar snap peas and talked about what they would need to grow. Then we planted them in a glass jar with the seed pressed against the glass so that can watch them as they grow. In morning circle, we learnt a new German song ‘Morgens früh um sechs.’ We also looked at the clock and started to tell o’clock times, counting the numbers as the hour-hand travelled around the clock. The pre-school children...
