Events - Academic Year 2019 - 2020
Learning together 24th September 2019
Pre-school 1 parents joined us for an afternoon of Forest school. Everyone was involved in a typical Forest School session as well as having the opportunity to discuss with staff and key workers the curriculum taught within our Forest School setting.
We celebrated Harvest Festival with sensory trays and Pumpkin soup made by our Cook.
We had some amazing feedback from our parents.
"Absolutely love the work with counting and sounds, but in the environment that they are
playing in at the time"
"I now have a greater understanding of child led learning and also recognising the freedom given to the children (with boundaries) equals greater learning"
Fire Brigade Visit - 26th September 2019
The children enjoyed learning about emergency services. They were lucky enough to explore a fire engine, spray water with the hose and even the staff got to dress up!!
Handas Surprise Story Day - 17th October 2019
The children enjoyed celebrating literature by taking part in a variety of activities based around the story 'Handa's Surprise'. They danced to African music, tried new and exotic fruit. Made rainmakers and learned to count to 10 in African. Our cook made an African themed lunch of Kuka paka (chicken and coconut curry) with rice and beans and mini mandazi for dessert.
