Forest school was so much fun this week. We made clay tiger faces on trees as part of our Chinese New year celebrations.


After being struck by covid it was so lovely to welcome everyone back this week.
We all enjoyed making orange bird feeders and looking for birds in our outside area.
We are taking part in the Great British Bird Watch.

Our topic this week has been 'snow and ice'. The children have all enjoyed watching the ice melt, which has sparked lots of discussion about ice. How is it made, what is it, its cold - why?!


We settled into 2022 this week. Welcoming all our friends back to pre-school. We enjoyed painting with icy colours and talking about what we did over the holidays. Looking forward to our term ahead we will be learning all about Winter ❄️❄️
Happy New Year🎉🎉

This week we have been exploring pumpkins. We have taken out the insides and used the seeds in our play doh and gloop, painted them, hammered them and shape sorted them!

This afternoon we have been decorating our pumpkins!


We have been out investigating the world around us this week and collecting lots of conkers!


This week the children made their own play dough everyday.
A great activity that promotes listening, fine motor skills and supports our imaginations!

It's been a busy week printing, painting, snipping, mixing and making!


Our term topic is 'All about me'. We are very proud of our display board this term. The children spent time looking in the mirror and creating themselves using a range of materials.
Not only does this activity promote hand eye coordination, it helps children appreciate themselves and the world and people around them. 😊


Today at pre-school we made apple boats!!
The children used safety knives to cut the apples in half (helped by a practitioner) and then they decorated a sail. We then tested out our apple boats in the water.
It was great fun and promoted a lot of discussion about floating and sinking! They also taste good to!


Good luck to all our pre-schoolers. Whether you are moving onto primary, returning to us or its your first day with us.
We hope tomorrow is full of fun and laughter!


We are all very much looking forward to a new year at Chieveley Pre-School. Welcoming our returning and new families to our pre-school family. We are open from Monday 6th September. See you all soon. 😃


Wishing all our Pre-School friends and families a very happy and safe summer together.
It's a very fond farewell to some of our families who we all wish very well.
See you in September! 🌞😁

Massive congratulations to Lydia our Deputy Manager and SENco who has completed a
BA Hons in Children's Development and Learning at Reading University.

We are all so pleased and proud of her. It's a fantastic achievement.

Congratulations Lydia.


Bug hunting at pre-school. The outdoor's provides lots of opportunities to make exciting discoveries. For example 'what is under this log?'. Which in turn can prompt a range of questions!


We wish you all a very Happy Father's Day, however and whoever you're celebrating it with. ❤🧡💛💚💙💜


We are so proud to be part of this amazing tribute to Dylan by VoxSonix.
Such a talented group of singers.

Today we planted a tree to remember a friend we have lost ♥.

Beyond the rainbow’s end, there lies the land of love and light, where shadows never dim the skies, for there, there is no night.
And though the loss is hard to bear, of loved ones, or of friend, we know that we shall find them there, beyond the rainbow’s end.
