Some very special visitors this morning!! The lovely and patient firefighters of Wellington took an hour of their time and showed the children their truck and tools! We definitely have some future heroes on our hands! 😊😎
We are on the hunt for some frog spawn guys!! If anyone can help please drop us a message!! We can collect!! 😃
Preschool have had one great adventure today visiting Telford Town Park and also the Exotic Zoo! We saw various animals from Rabbits to Lemurs and also lots of new life! The children mainly loved seeing the baby goats and stroking them inside a small pen which I'm sure they will always remember and talk about for days about them! Definitely worth a visit if you need something to do in the holidays! 🐇🐢🦦🦨🐐🦘
Preschool will be visiting the exotic zoo on Monday if anyone would like to meet them there! 11am opening time 🙏🏻 weather dependent!
They have been loving animals... Listening to facts from our books and asking questions 👀🕵️
We are looking for a new apprentice as our wonderful Jade joins us fully qualified now 🙌🏻❤️🎉 A huge well done from us all!!
Toddlers have had a super week or 2 as well…..we have taught them to BLOW! This is a great skill for strengthening those mouth muscles and supporting breathing techniques.
They have loved finding different objects to use for blowing... Straws, bottles, bubble wands, potato mashers and blowing the watery paint across the table.
We have been doing lots of work on our hand and eye co-ordination, by doing this we have used various resources to thread. Playdough and skewers have been a big favourite as well as sticks and foam.
We have invited parents in for a "mothers day" stay and play which was lovely to see.
We have seen high levels of focus during activities over the last few weeks and children showing perseverance.
A super couple of weeks in Preschool! They ended last week showing off their awesomeness to an Ofsted inspector so watch this space for our results!! 🤩
More magnets, junk modelling, recycling that ended up leading on to textures.....measuring the daffodils then exploring the snow really messed with teaching the children about the seasons but it's all good for those questions about our world!! School leaver group have started flying in their maths and literacy....we have some good little problem solvers who are interested in sums and they are loving copying letters and starting to do some phonics already!
As always, teamwork and high levels of engagement shining through our critical and resilient little people! 🧐😎

A great few weeks for Preschool which included a visit to Cosford Museum and to the park.✈️ We have also been exploring how magnets work and used these to complete races and paintings. 🧲 We have also done lots of risk taking with obstacles and also started to explore the daffodils! 🌼
Toddlers have had a super week....lots of outdoor play in the mud kitchen, bat and ball and tunnelling! We have LOVED the kitchen roll absorbing the watery paint and ended up sticking it to the windows! Threading, posting and filling/pouring galore using our problem solving skills and building that perseverance! Lots of love going around too with the children saying 'ta' to each other when they want something they've got and even asking each other for cuddles 🥰🧐😎
Toddlers have also had a wonderful start to their year! they have been focussing on cause and effect (through posting, hiding objects, ice play, mark making) and categorising objects in a range of ways! They have loved looking at different colours, using different tools and most of all they continue to show us their independence and ability to come up with new ways to do things that we could never plan for! Sticking playdough on windows and easels, shaking the pasta out of tubs to watch it fly, using balloons as mark making tools to name a few! ☺️🧐😎🥳
Preschool have had a wonderful first half term of the year!! We have explored ice/snow, wind, Chinese New Year, had storyteller visits, learnt about healthy eating by making smoothies and soup, celebrated Pizza Day, explored positional language, plenty of cutting, using hammers, making obstacles courses, role play, playdough, building, loose part play AND of course....looking at books together! 😁🧐😎
ALSO REMEMBER CHILDREN SHOULD NOT WEAR COATS IN CAR SEATS TOO PLEASE!! 😃
Babies need regular breaks from their car seats when travelling. So, if you’re going away this half term, remember to plan in some short stops along the way. You’ll also need to think about where your baby will sleep once you arrive as car seats are for transport only and shouldn’t be used as an alternative for a cot.
More info available on our car seat advice page as well: https://www.lullabytrust.org.uk/safer-sleep-advice/car-seats-and-sids/
Our childrens library is looking a little bare, if anyone has any books they would like to donate I would be very grateful. 📚📚📚
