Can you believe that this is the last half term before we go onto our Reception classes?
This year has flown! We now have a date for the Graduation assembly- Tuesday 16th July and this will be held in the afternoon. All children will be invited into pre-school for this event. Watch out for the letter closer to the time!
Also, this coming Tuesday is our Sports Day. It will begin at approx 1.15pm and will last around 45 minutes. Again, all children are invited to participate. If your child is not usually in school on Tuesday, please bring them to the Nursery entrance at 1pm. Kerry's class will be doing their sports day immediately after us, so please be patient with us when we are dismissing the children back into your care. We will need to take the children back to the classroom and you can collect them from there. There are no seating restrictions so please bring along Nan, Grandad, Aunties and Uncles to watch your child's first ever sports day!
Right......now that is done!
For this half term in pre-school we will be learning about The World around us. We have begun this by learning about what lives under the sea. The children were amazed, when we looked on Google Earth at the end of the last half term, at how much water there is on our planet. We have shown the children that our country is surrounded by water and they were interested about what lived under the sea.
We have read the story of 'Tiddler-the story telling fish' this week.
We acted out the story during our helicopter story sessions and have been recalling the story in our 'together time' carpet sessions.
During our Drawing the Write Way session we have drawn a picture of Tiddler, focussing on the shape of his body and the horizontal lines that make up his tail.
Some children made a 'sticky fish' in the continuous provision. These are displayed on the classroom door if you would like to see them. Ellie loved doing this activity and when she had finished doing hers she helped other children in creating theirs too!
In our Maths session, we went fishing for fishy shapes!
We had to catch a fish using a magnetic rod and then describe the shape that we had to our friend, or name the shape if we were unsure of how to describe it.
We have had lots more 'fishy' kind of fun in the continuous provision too!
We would like to wish Adam a very happy birthday. He joined the number 4 club during the half term!
Have a lovely weekend, we will see you next week to learn all about the 'Singing Mermaid'.
