Today is the 25th Annual World Book Day!
To celebrate World Book Day today, we have a range of activities based on the children's books and characters we love.
What is your favourite book to read with your family?πŸ“š


The children have been using their imagination to make potions today. We used sage, mint, coriander, parsley and water. We mixed them with spoons in the bowls. The children were asking lots of thought-provoking questions about the herbs we used. For example- they were asking what the different herbs were and what you use them for. They were smelling all of the different herbs. When we smelt the mint the children said 'mint-like toothpaste or ice cream' this shows how they familiarise scents with different foods and objects.

The children have been role-playing the story of Three Little Pigs using props in the Tuff Spot. They were able to recognise and recall part of the story. They listened intently to a member of staff telling the story and took turn when they finished using the props.
This was extended with activities to create the houses with craft materials and drawing their own houses and pics too! Great job!

Today the children made valentines biscuits for the people they love, inspired by valentines day on the 14th of February. The children really enjoyed wearing their chef uniforms and measuring out and mixing their ingredients. They then chose what valentine shape they wanted to make their biscuits.

Today we have been exploring our emotions using open-ended playdough and resources including googly eyes, string, pom-poms and lolly sticks. We spoke about how we were feeling and what those feelings made our faces do! We then attempted to make those faces on our playdo

This morning at pre-school, we are experimenting with different textures so we are using tissue paper to paint on. Instead of using paintbrushes, we are using cotton buds and chopsticks. They were mixing all of the colours to see what colour they could make. They said they were making rainbows.


Prompted by a conversation when discussing what happens when you mix two different colours of playdough, we started exploring mixing all the colours! We put various paint colours into trays and showed the children how to use a palette to mix their individual choices. It got very messy but we loved seeing what colours we could create!

We have been practising using our chopsticks for Chinese New Year. We used them to transfer rice and noodles from one pot to another this took great fine motor skills! We also used chopsticks to paint with!

This week we are creating investigation trays for the children to explore, today we are investigating oil & water. We used cups of watered down paint and separate cups of oil, the children transferred the water and oil between the guttering and discovered that the paint could mix but the oil could not. We developed this activity by making food colouring rain clouds with oil.
The children have really enjoyed watching the oil bubbles form.
We also added oil to a jug of water and discussed what was happening, I introduced the word soluble and we discussed how the oil could not mix with the water. We then used food colouring and pipettes to add colour to the solution to see what would happen. The children experimented dropping the dye on top of the water and saw how it formed bubbles in the oil, the children then added the pippet deep into the water and watched as the food colouring mixed with the water. We had lots of fun experimenting with oil today.

This week we are exploring our investigation trays which will change throughout the week. This morning the children discovered how to make gloop by transferring the water via guttering from one tray to the cornflour in the second tray. The children really enjoyed using all the guttering to pour the water into the second tray, once the gloop had formed they enjoyed playing with it using the jugs and spoons.

The children planted seeds in the garden with Ameena and Lucy S. They were planting all different types of seeds such as daffodils, sunflowers, pumpkins seeds, poppy seeds and some other vegetables. This is a great activity for the children to learn about the environment and where our food comes from. The children were also watering the seeds they planted and seemed excited to see the result.


As part of our garden Champion level 3, we have been learning about animal habitats and how we can care for the animals. We have set up observation stations at the window and also in the garden so we can observe the wildlife around the preschool.

Yesterday morning we went outside to explore the winter weather. We spoke about winter and all the different types of weather we may see. Today at preschool the garden was covered in snow so we got the camera out and took pictures for our winter board.


At the junk modelling activity, we decided to make a house. The children used lots of different resources including sellotape, scissors, cupcake cases, paint and glue with lots of tissue paper and feathers for sticking! This activity was completely child-led and the children discussed what they would use the box for once it was finished, the ideas included "dinosaur house, farm, people house, and a fire station" we look forward to including the box in our classroom
Try at home:
Collect some boxes/ containers and see what you can make at home!


We have some exciting new Christmas stories in our lending library for you to borrow! β„οΈπŸŽ„
