A warm welcome to those children who were allowed to join us again this week and well done for settling into the new routines. Unfortunately, due to the guidelines, we are unable to do morning circle or any singing. We have, however, been trying to spend as much time outside as possible and the children have really enjoyed finding worms and making ‘worm gardens’ at the playground. Some changes to our routines: Drop off The red/green circle system is working really well in the morning, with...

We hope you are all keeping well. Looking to the future, we are pleased to inform you that many more children will return to Bubbles from the 15th June and hopefully everyone will be able to return from the 1st July. For the next two weeks, we have chosen the theme ‘Transport’. There are so many activity ideas, but we have chosen just a few for the activity sheet.

We hope you are all keeping well and having fun. As we have just had Mother’s and Father’s Day, we thought we would choose ‘Families’ as our theme.

Told from a child’s perspective, there are no judgements or stereotypes as each child shares in a...

We hope you are all keeping well and happy. It seems like everyone has settled into their own routines, as the children are sending us fewer messages, having established a new ‘daily normality’. Remember, we are here for you if the children would like to send a message. The twice-weekly Zoom sessions for the preschool children with Annie are going well and we hope you find the stories/poems and newsletters we all share useful. Now we have four 'Notbetreuung' children who have returned to...

On Monday, the children in kindergarten found a spider, so we decided to start a new theme ‘Bugs’. There are so many brilliant books about bugs, but I thought I’d share this one with you today. ‘Bug Hunt’ by Tom Story, this is a story about a child going on a bug hunt and just how tricky it can be to catch bugs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nL7On2gBkw We hope you have lots of fun, have a lovely weekend and Happy Mother’s Day!

We hope you are all keeping well. Thank you for the feedback you sent us. This week seems to have worked well, so we will set up similar activities next week.

For those of you wanting someone for your child to talk to, please arrange this directly with your child’s friends. This week we have started a theme ‘Flowers and Growing’. It has...
