Today, Pre School made Playdough from scratch (arenโ€™t they clever?) ๐Ÿ˜Š

Did you know that play dough:
1๏ธโƒฃ develops our fine motor skills by using our fingers & tools to make our creations
2๏ธโƒฃ it can support mathematical development by recognising different sizes & quantities
3๏ธโƒฃ helps our social skills by practicing turn taking, as well as talking about what we are making

โญ๏ธ WE LOVE PLAYDOUGH โญ๏ธ

Itโ€™s been an exploration morning in Pre-School this morning ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธ
The children had great fun making enclosed spaces by using different shapes & enhancing the experience with coloured light blocks๐Ÿ’ก
It was agreed the toy cars were the perfect fit for the space created ๐Ÿš—

Even though we havenโ€™t done any fundraising for Children in Need 2022, we have completed some Pudsey based activities ๐Ÿ˜Š

In the baby room, we are looking at Nursery Rhymes & this week we are focusing on โ€œTwinkle Twinkle Little Starโ€ โญ๏ธโ€ฆ so today, we have been busy making Star Biscuits ๐Ÿ˜‹

Itโ€™s been a busy but learning Wednesday morning in Pre School ๐Ÿ˜Š
Based on their Focus Book of the Week which is โ€œPete the Cat, Twinkle Twinkle Little Starโ€ โญ๏ธ, the children have been making, decorating & using their own telescopes to see what they could find outside ๐Ÿ‘€
We have also been demonstrating our understanding of British Values by turn taking & asking politely to use resources & toys - the children discovered it is more fun to share ๐Ÿฅฐ


Today, at 11.00am, instead of observing a two minute silence, we showed the children a short two minute story about a bunny & fireworks, which helped to explain the importance of today ๐Ÿ‡๐ŸŽ†

Whilst some are getting ready to enjoy some (very wet) firework displays, we thought we would just share some safety tips for those of you who are having a โ€œD.I.Y displayโ€ tonight from your back garden ๐Ÿ˜Š

We hope you all enjoy yourselves but most importantly, stay safe ๐ŸŽ‡๐Ÿ”ฅ

This week, our Pre Schoolers have collected the tomatoes from our Growing Area, that we have been growing over the summer ๐Ÿ…

We have practised our weighing & counting skills, as well as talking about their colour, their texture, their shape & even wondered if the green ones weighed more than the red ones ๐Ÿ˜Š

Who knew tomatoes could be so versatile & interesting ๐Ÿง


Over the last few days, Pre School have been practising their number & quantity recognition, by using conkers collected for our Discovery Tray ๐ŸŒณ


Any Christmas Fundraiser forms & money to be returned to the setting by Friday 14th October ๐Ÿ˜Š

Our Baby room has been working on our Autumn displays today, they've been painting leaves and counting pumpkins.


Itโ€™s been a morning of practising our early counting skills in the Toddler Room ๐Ÿ˜Š

We have been using the ducks & nursery rhymes to support our ever improving counting skills - our favourite rhyme this morning was โ€œ5 little ducksโ€ ๐Ÿฆ†๐ŸŽต๐Ÿฆ†


In the baby room today, our focus is recognising colours ๐Ÿ˜Š
And what better way to recognise our colours by building tall & colourful towers using our big pegs ๐Ÿ˜‰


Did you know that there are 7 stages of Block Play?

Over the last few days, our Pre School children have been exploring Stacking Blocks & Making Bridges, as part of the earlier stages of Block Play.

Not only have they had great fun constructing their structures, it has also helped them to develop their โ€œteam workโ€ skills ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ’ช


To all of our amazing Sunflowers grandparents โ˜บ๏ธ
We appreciate you too ๐Ÿฅฐ


This morning in Preschool we have been mark making using conkers! ๐ŸŽจ

This has helped to support our fine motor skills, whilst tipping & moving the conkers in our tray ๐Ÿ–

The activity also promoted good listening & speaking skills, as we needed to wait for our turn ๐Ÿ‘‚ ๐Ÿ—ฃ

We also spoke about the different colours we had made, along with the textures & shapes of the conkers themselves.

Most of all - we had lots of fun ๐Ÿคฉ


Pre School have been getting ready to welcome your kind donations for our Harvest Festival collection โ˜บ๏ธ

Can we introduce Georgia to all of our families ๐Ÿ˜Š

Georgia has been apart of the Sunflowers team for the last few weeks, working in the rooms to get to know the staff & your amazing children ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Over the next few days & weeks, our parents will become familiar with Georgia too when she greets you at the door to do a handover with you & your child & so she can continue to enhance the links we have with you all ๐Ÿ˜Š

Welcome Georgia to our little โ€œSunflowers Familyโ€ ๐ŸŒป


Just a reminder that we will be closed on Monday 19th September to be able to pay our respects to the Queen ๐Ÿ‘ธ

We will reopen, as usual, for more fun & learning on Tuesday 20th September from 7.30am ๐Ÿ˜Š


Today in our Pre School Room Phase One phonics lesson, we went outside onto the front garden, where we took part in our environmental sounds lesson.
We closed our eyes & opened our ears to the sounds & noise around us. Some of the exciting sounds we could hear, amongst other things were "Cars" "The wind in the trees" "The mixer" and โ€œChildren playing"

This week, our Pre School children have been excited to use their new reading area ๐Ÿ˜Š

This new space gives them the opportunity to look at our books in a more quieter, relaxing & cosier area ๐Ÿ“š

To pay tribute to yesterdays news, our children (or kings and queens as they have been called) have been busy making crownโ€™s ๐Ÿ‘ธ ๐Ÿคด


A very sad evening ๐Ÿ‘‘

โ€œEvery story has an end, but in life every ending is a new beginningโ€ฆ.โ€
