A blog to show all that we’ve been up to in Pre-School.

Loving Literacy

By Blog No Comments

We know that a love of literacy and books does not come through just a daily story time.

Having favourite, familiar, fictional and fact books available throughout the setting and throughout the session ensures that the children can access and explore them freely, share them with us and each other or enjoy them in a safe space. We have already seen children recalling and retelling story details, ‘reading’ their own version of the story, drawing and creating story characters and introducing story lines in their own role-play.

A Great Start to the new School Year

We have been very busy welcoming back old and new friends.

It is more important than ever to focus on our children and families well being, ensuring that the children feel safe and supported. We have therefore purposely provided a range of familiar and favourite toys, activities and areas, extending our Child Initiated Play, giving us the time to concentrate on building relationships and getting to know each and every child.

Group and circle activities.

We have been continuously risk assessing the activities we can provide safely and this week were pleased to re-introduce circle time activities. We began with some simple and favourite circle games before excitedly moving on to small parachute games followed by large parachute games.

The children listened, followed instructions, worked together and responded positively and enthusiastically to all of the activities offered.
