Wow! This half term seems to be flying along!! We have been so busy with all our learning. We have been exploring colour mixing, creating collages, painting with beetroot, creating flower gardens and our favourite activity for this time of the year…making huge nests on the field! Hope you enjoy seeing all the fun we have had! 😊

We have had a fun and busy few weeks at preschool. We liked getting our hands messy with powder paint and seeing what colours we made. We explored different textures and liked to paint on felt.
We have built roads for our cars using the building tools. This helped to develop our imagination and turn taking skills when racing the cars.
We enjoyed playing the game of finding items that are circular shape. We then grouped them together and liked to use the magnifying glasses to look at them in more detail.
We bullt bridges using the big wooden blocks and liked to find out the biggest vehicle that fitted under the bridge.
We are exploring Spring and looking at the changes and lifecycles of animals. We had lots of fun making our nests with eggs and chicks 🐣
We have been reading the story of “Owl babies”. We have enjoyed exploring and making owl nests using props from our story sack. We will continue to explore Spring further.

We have had another lovely and busy week at preschool. We have enjoyed listening to the story of The Gingerbread Man and re telling it back to our friends. We liked to use our props to role play the story. We created our own gingerbread bread men pictures and used a range of collage materials to stick with.
We liked to explore flour play. We made marks using our fingers and also liked to drive cars through it and look at the marks made. We loved getting our hands all messy!
We have been developing our fine motor skills further using dry spaghetti to mark make with in paint. We learnt quickly that we had to hold the spaghetti gently and make little strokes on paper as it breaks very easily! The children had lots of fun exploring this. We also added spaghetti and straws into play dough to create our cakes and pies. We liked to use our fine motor skills when posting the spaghetti down the straw!

We had another lovely week at preschool. We have enjoyed reading the story of the Three Little Pigs. We got creative making our own pig houses using straw, sticks and bricks. We made up our own stories using props and even put on a show for our friends!
We have also worked together to make a road,using the wooden bricks, to race our cars along. We took turns and shared the cars with our friends. This helped with the development of our problem solving and social skills.
We continue to explore numbers and letters. We liked to mark make numbers in the play dough to help develop our number recognition.
We have been strengthening our hand muscles when using the tools to saw, screw and bang nails into a cardboard box. We had lots of fun doing this and worked together as a team.

We had lots of fun last week exploring the story of Goldilocks and the three bears! We did lots of role play by making up our own stories using the props and toy house. We were able to develop our understanding and maths skills further when exploring small, medium and large and then bringing mathematical language into our play. We liked to get our hands all messy when we made oat biscuit bakes. This developed our science and mathematical skills when talking about weight and observing what happens when you mix ingredients together, changing the texture and consistency.
We enjoyed building homes for safari animals, using the small world resources to create stories and develop our imagination further.
We have explored paint and how colours can be changed.

Digging up the mud!

25/02/2022

More digger fun!

Photos from Pyrford Preschool's post 25/02/2022

Today Preschool have very much enjoyed seeing a real working digger! We were super excited and some of us were even eager to go on the digger and have a go at working the controls! We spoke about how the digger works, the sounds it makes and what the digger does. We also liked to watch the digger in action. We spoke about where we find diggers. Some of us enjoyed playing with the toy diggers and liked to dig up our own mud in the preschool garden.

Photos from Pyrford Preschool's post 24/02/2022

This week we have been exploring the story ‘Goldilocks and the three bears’. We have enjoyed listening to the story and using the props to retell it. Our story telling has been fabulous! We have enjoyed using collage materials to make our own bears and have worked on our fine motor skills by joining the bears back together using tags. We have also built different size beds and chairs using a variety of construction resources.

Photos from Pyrford Preschool's post 08/02/2022

Over the last few weeks in preschool we have enjoyed lots of mark making in a range of sensory malleable play. We have used our fingers to form letters and shapes as well as our own creations. We loved to pour and fill containers using rice, salt and lentils.
We had lots of fun making our cakes and very much enjoyed getting our hands messy! We wanted to decorate our cakes after using icing and sprinkles. We also carried out some data collection by asking our peers what colour icing they wanted to have. We made a tally chart and then counted how many peers wanted to use red or blue icing.
We also made tiger masks for Chinese New Year. We had lots of fun using a range of materials to create our pictures.

Some super maths work! Measuring with a measuring tape and ordering towers from big to small.
We have also been working on our threading skills, using a variety of different shapes. We were seeing who could thread the most items on to the string! You may be able to see who was the winner in the picture!
We enjoyed experimenting with powder paint to see the different colours we could make.
We love to build towers using different types of building blocks. You can see our fabulous towers built with log slices and colourful wooden bricks. Which is your favourite?

Our love of potion making just keeps growing! Thankfully our grown ups supplied us with a range of ingredients to investigate and create with! We had rice, marshmallows, spaghetti, smash, water, in a variety of colours, and plenty of bottles and spoons to use!
Outside we discovered that ice had formed in some of the buckets and we very much wanted to use this within our potion making in the garden. We decided to get out the tools to break down the ice so we could get to work.

We had a lovely donation of fruit to explore and we used the bananas to work on our cutting skills. Some of us enjoyed the challenge of cutting through the skin! Some of us peeled the bananas first…both ways are great for developing our fine motor skills.
We had a great time decorating our biscuits…we made dinosaurs, crocodiles and even a fairy biscuit.
We have been working really hard to choose the creative resources we would like to use. You can see from our collages that we have selected lots of bright colours and a variety of materials. Outside we have been using our ramps to roll balls down…it’s very tricky to get the ball to stay on till the end of the ramp! We also enjoy using the ramps as part of obstacle courses for us to walk up and down.

Photos from Pyrford Preschool's post 07/02/2022

We have been loving the mud kitchen that has been added to our garden. We make so many wonderful potions! We have enjoyed using the diggers to help clear up some of the mud on the floor.
We have carried out some super colour matching activities, both indoors and outdoors. We love being able to locate our own resources from around the hall to add to the colour matching activity. We enjoyed making jam sandwiches and resisted the urge to take a bite straight away! Such a great activity to develop our hand and arm strength.
We have been using our imagination to tell stories with unusual objects…I wonder if you can guess what our story was about?

We have LOVED being back at Preschool this week! We have loved seeing our friends and getting busy with our learning. We have enjoyed water play with coloured paper. We have been busy ‘fixing’ things that we have found in the hall. We have been very creative with the playdough, warming up our finger muscles by rolling and moulding the dough. We have made octopus and bunnies with the playdough and some additional resources to use as tentacles and ears! Today we enjoyed going on a treasure hunt to see what we could discover in the field. We hunted for big, small, tiny, long and shiny items! 🤩

The children have been very busy the last couple of weeks exploring lots of messy play to create Christmas pictures. We have explored glue, paint and glitter with our hands. This helps with our fine motor skills and to strengthen and develop our muscles. We have used scissors to practice our cutting skills. We have very much enjoyed wrapping up boxes and toys and then having lots of fun giving them to our friends to unwrap and find out what the surprise is! We also loved to decorate our Christmas tree 🎄 and make a star for the top.
We have explored different coloured water and paint to see what colours we can create. We have used pipettes to squeeze water into different sized containers to make them full and half full. This brings Maths and Science into our learning.
We have enjoyed building with our natural wooden materials.

🔹Fireworks painting using glittery paint and different types of brushes.
🔹Pom-poms and tweezers - we enjoyed using the tweezers to pick up different pom-poms and filling pots. The tweezers help to strengthen our fingers for when we are ready to write!

A great first day back from half term! We have started making some rockets. We enjoyed squeezing in different coloured paint and shaking the bottles to allow the colours to mix! We talked about the colours we used and the new colour we created.
We have loved our new road ramps and blocks! We have set them up in different ways and loved driving the cars and walking the figures along them.

Halloween fun! We made positions on dressing up day. We were amazed as the colours mixed to create new colours! We worked on our fine motor skills by using different pipettes and squeezy bottles. Later we added in some flour to make some slime!
We have enjoyed a range of Halloween creative activities, making pumpkins, spiders and witches cauldrons.
Our preschoolers collected leaves and cut them into little pieces to decorate their names. So much fun and so many skills!

Photos from Pyrford Preschool's post 07/10/2021

Today was all about developing our motor skills. We were busy digging for bulbs and insects in the garden. We enjoyed looking at all the roots and insects that we discovered. Inside, we have been threading pipe cleaners through different shaped pots, pe***ng up clothes on the washing line and threading Cheerios onto strawberry laces. All of these activities help us to strengthen our fingers to prepare us for writing. They are all super fun too!

What a busy few weeks we have had at preschool! We have been exploring autumn and are talking about the changes that we see. We went on a leaf and stick hunt and used a range of resources to create hibernation boxes. We then painted pinecones and stuck googly eyes on them to create our hedgehogs. We have enjoyed exploring different textures and seeing what marks can be made in paint with leaves and sticks. We have talked about the colour leaves we see falling off the trees. We have also had lots of fun creating our own autumn trees!

Photos from Pyrford Preschool's post 22/09/2021

What a busy few days we have had. We have loved the sunshine and enjoyed building with the foam blocks on the field.
We have explored lots of different painting techniques from sponges to making car tracks. We are very proud of all our fabulous artwork.
Our preschoolers have been learning about animals that hibernate. They worked together to make a big hedgehog and have started to create some hibernation boxes with leaves and twigs that they collected from the field.
We have all settled so well into Preschool now and every session is filled with SO many different activities! It’s really hard to remember tell our parents what we have been up to during our mornings away. Hopefully all these pictures will give them a good idea of the fun filled sessions we have! 😊

Photos from Pyrford Preschool's post 14/09/2021

What a busy couple of days we have had! We have made ploughdough together, we enjoyed stirring all the ingredients and using the measuring spoons.
We have been continuing our ‘Dinosaur world’ play by creating a home for the dinosaurs and thinking about what they might like to eat.
The toy frogs are a big hit with us at the moment so it was only right that we made a frog hotel too!
Outside we have been making ‘soup!’ We enjoyed smelling and identifying the different herbs (mint is a big favourite!) and snipping bits off to add to our soup!
We have been very creative with junk modelling, painting and drawing. We love talking about the pictures we have made.
We have also been doing a range of fine motor skills activities, such as peg boards, mobilio and threading!
Our teachers are super impressed with how well we have all settled into our new setting and for those that have returned after the long summer holiday! 🤩 A fabulous start to the new term!

Photos from Pyrford Preschool's post 07/09/2021

Wow! What a fun packed couple of days we have had! We have been super busy exploring our new setting and discovering all the wonderful activities we can access.
We have loved playing in the role play area, making dinner and looking after some ‘special’ friends.
The water play has been great in this hot weather. We have been scooping and pouring which helps to develop our motor skills. We have also enjoyed painting with water on the blackboard. We can make different lines and shapes!
We worked really hard to share the magnets and were very curious to see what else we could ‘catch’ with the magnetic rod!
Building has been a very popular activity with us all and today we built a dinosaur zoo! We worked hard to build together and share the big blocks! A fab start to the week 🤩

Photos from Pyrford Preschool's post 06/07/2021

Today our preschoolers were set a challenge to see how many different ways they could use 5 cubes. We then looked at the different combinations to see how they added together to make 5.
Our role play area was a school today and enjoyed being ‘teacher’ 👩‍🏫 very much!
We also had a fab time celebrating a birthday with a game of pass the parcel!

Photos from Pyrford Preschool's post 05/07/2021

Dinosaurs! What a week of fun we had! We made dinosaurs in different ways, from junk modelling, paper plates and handprints. We also made dinosaur zoo’s and houses! We also enjoyed threading with Cheerios and lots of water play! We worked on our fine motor skills with pom poms and tweezers and even designed some very fancy cakes! Such a busy week!

In preschool we have explored numbers by matching pasta to the correct numbered domino.
The children have really enjoyed exploring animals/pets and we extended the children’s interest further by turning the home corner into a vets! The children enjoyed exploring the doctors kit and making the pets better by giving them medicine and applying bandages.
We have also continued to develop our scissor control by cutting out shapes.
We have very much enjoyed exploring lots of sensory and malleable activities. In particular, we enjoyed using our hands and rollers to explore paint by mixing the paint together to discover what colours we can make.
