The children had a sheet to bring home with pictures of all the leaves and seeds they had found. In Kindergarten our theme was ‘Bubbles’. Becky Bunny (one of our...

This week we had ‘squirrels’ as our theme. On Tuesday we walked around Bavaria Park collecting to search for squirrels. We also found lots of nuts and seeds they might like to eat.

The children also enjoyed singing a lovely song about a hungry little squirrel. Our preschool focus this week was the...

This week we had ‘hedgehogs’ as our theme. On Tuesday we walked around the Park collecting leaves and thin twigs which we brought back to Bubbles.

In morning circle we talked about where hedgehogs live, what they eat, how they curl up to protect themselves and that they hibernate over winter. We also sang a...

We learnt the Jolly Phonics song for ‘B’ During the week, the children had an opportunity to cut and fold their own autumn leaf. (I’ve attached photos to show some of the...

This week we have continued our theme about trees. We looked closely at horse chestnuts and described their cases and the nuts inside. The children then had the opportunity to do some lovely paintings of the horse chestnuts. The preschool children practiced the letter ‘A’ and found lots of objects that start with that letter. Although we are not singing in Kindergarten we learnt the poem to help remember the letter ‘A’. Sports On Thursday mornings we will continue with our sports...

A warm welcome back to all our families. This week we have been talking about trees. At the park we were excited to find horse chestnuts (conkers) and apples that have fallen from the trees. The children had the opportunity to make stick people using leaves, twigs, flowers, berries and nuts. We focused on the language to name and describe these things. On Friday we walked to the forest to look at more trees and see what we could find. We had a wonderful time finding, horse chestnuts, beech nuts...

Thank you for joining us for our summer party. We had a lot of fun and it was wonderful to see everyone. This week we had a celebration for all the children who had a birthday during Lockdown. The children made their own birthday crowns, which they were very proud of, and wore them for the whole day. Unfortunately, the birthday presents went missing, so we spent the morning following clues and searching for the missing treasure. Finally, we found it and had a lovely celebration back in...
