At pre-school we are so proud of our children as they work hard to master their self help skills. From serving and chopping their own snack to helping each other with coats and shoes they try really hard to be independent. They have even been busy washing the dishes and cups after snack time! Well done everyone.
We have used our developing democracy skills to learn all about voting!
The children had a range of stories they wanted us to read so we took a class vote. The children lined up next to the story they wanted to choose and counted how many children were in each line . They were then able to tell the teachers which vote had the biggest number and which had the smallest number. The story with the biggest number is the one we enjoyed all together.
The children have had a wonderfully muddy walk in the beautiful West Wycombe Park!
We enjoyed jumping in lots of muddy puddles, running through streams, finding swans and cygnets on the lake and mushrooms in the woods. We used our listening skills to see if we could hear owls and foxes moving in the leaves and found a giant bear cave to explore Lots of our families joined us for our magical adventure through the secret door.
What a wonderful week the children have had making love heart cookies! They have practised cracking eggs, sifting flour, mixing and rolling dough. They were very yummy!
We have enjoyed welcoming 30 wriggly caterpillars to pre-school and the children have loved watching them turn into cocoons. We have played caterpillar number games, made caterpillar paper chains, caterpillar arts and crafts and junk modelling. We can not wait to see how many turn in to beautiful butterflies!
