As part of our remembrance day at preschool the children made poppy pictures using a variety of tools. We also looked at the word poppy and tried to write the letters. The children practised cutting skills by helping to cut out our poppy bunting.
We watched the Cbeebies remembrance film poppies and held a minute silence after this we listened to the last post.
The children made a poppy biscuit which we ate for snack and took one home to recall our day’s events.
This half term we have been learning about minibeasts. Helen brought in her stick insects and the children enjoyed letting them move around on them. We also explored all of our senses when we went out on a muddy puddle hunt. Everyone dressed up in waterproofs and the hunt began.
Mark making has also been an area of interest. We have been mark making in flour, paint and chalk. The children sparked this focus and we are going to continue with it into next term with more opportunities.
For the second half term, we looked at rhyming stories. A firm favourite was ‘Shark in the Park’. We then moved onto Easter and performed several songs in our Parish Church.
