What we are up to

This is a very exciting term in the Forest Room, all the children have been getting back into the flow of pre-school after the long summer break.  They have settled back in wonderfully and are adapting to the new 'drop off' rountine amazingly, we are very proud of them!  We have been talking about Autumn and are taking part in lots of Autumn activities.  We all put on our wellies and went on an exciting Autumn walk around the Pre-school garden looking for lots of conkers, sticks and leaves. We had great fun collecting all these things and found lots to bring back into pre-school, we are now planning lots of different activities using the objects we have found in the garden, such as, conker painting, leaf printing and lots more!!!!
Forest Room children regularly visit the school hall and take part in lots of physical activities and also use the gym apparatus, all the children thouroughly enjoy using the gym equipment, especially using the bean bags which they use to balance on their heads!!!! We are always looking for the children to move around the apparatus in different ways and they have been coming up with some wonderful ideas, such as, crawling, shuffling and pulling themselves across the equipment!

This term in Ocean Room we have been focusing on settling into nursery life. 

We have had lots of fun exploring all the areas within our room. We are talking about Autumn and doing our own creations of an autumn tree using different materials of Autumn colours.
We now have our own oven in pre-school in which we had many parents help fundraise for. We have been baking our own cakes and decorating them -the children enjoyed this very much especially licking the spoons afterwards and eating their own creations at snack time.

We have also had exciting things happening outside - the smurfs visiting our fairy garden, the dinosaurs have arrived in our sand pit and the children have took a liking to our new music area - banging pots and pans, tambourines and wooden blocks - maybe some future musicians in the making! As we have been singing old mcdonald had a farm - we have created our very  own 'Ocean Room farm' in our outside area also - using straw, bark, artificial grass and plenty of farm animals.
