This term both rooms are looking at the signs of Spring, Cubs are looking at Superworm 🪱 and mini beasts. Bears are looking at different flowers 🌸 that appear in Spring. Why not look for some of the signs of Spring when out on a walk with your child 🔎


This week the children have been feeling the love with Valentine's Day around the corner! Together they have been creating love potions in the tuff tray whilst talking about the importance of friendships! Sending you all lots of love from Young Risers💖💖

This week has been all about the Big Bird Watch! This afternoon we took the children for a bird watching adventure! Together we looked for different types of birds by using our checklist to document what they had seen and where we had found them, we also looked at a book about birds and the different sounds they make 🐦

This morning we went on a beautiful autumnal walk up to our local woods! On our travels the children spoke about their different senses, telling us what they could see, smell, hear and touch. The children enjoyed looking at the horses in the field and venturing into the woods, searching for sticks to build their very own stickman back at preschool. We also talked about woodland creatures especially hedgehogs as the little ones book is called "the very helpful hedgehog" 🍁🌿🍂


All of our children here at Young Risers have settled back into preschool amazingly over the last few weeks!
The children have had lots of fun playing with a range of different activities, especially outdoors as we have updated our garden area which the children have loved exploring. We can't wait to keep you posted on all the fun things we'll get up to for the rest of this term🍂

Today we completed the last day of our sponsored walk!
This afternoon we took the children on a beautiful walk up to the woods where they used lots of language ,telling Ruby and Toni what they could see. Once we got to the woods the children worked as a team to build their very own camp house out of the large sticks they found. They then decorated it with flowers and leaves.
The children have learnt about the importance of walking, and have done themself proud by completing their laps throughout the week🚶💓

This week the children have been learning all about flowers.🌺
At the start of the week we had our very own flower stall where the children were able to pick out flowers and plants and use different materials to wrap a bouquet of flowers up to give to their friends.
The children then planted their very own sunflower seeds. As a group we discussed what they needed to grow, the children said water and sun helps flowers grow.
Lots of maths language was used during planting our seeds as we spoke about how much soil and water we needed and how tall we thought our sunflowers would grow.🌻
