Happy Diwali

What a lovely weekend we’ve just had – did you manage to get out for an autumnal walk?  Our children went out for a walk on Friday to have a look at all the changes happening at this time of year.  We saw different coloured leaves, picked lots of apples, found some beechnuts and thistles and then sang autumn songs in the shelter.

We had some interesting chats last week about bones and the skeleton.  Some children were really fascinated with the names of bones and where they are in the body – perhaps we have doctors and nurses in the making.  We have had so much fun with role play in the hospital – there were some interesting injuries and remedies!!  Has your child been talking to you at home about what they have learnt?  Did you learn the skeleton song?

It was great to see photographs of family members last week, thank you to everyone who sent them in.  It was a lovely opportunity for children to ‘show and tell’ at carpet time; they proudly stood at the front of the class and talked about their family and when and where the pictures were taken.

At home with your child

If you have been doing something interesting at home or visited somewhere at the weekend we would love to hear about it.  You could jot a few words down that your child said, what you did and where you went, attach a photograph or an item you have collected e.g. an admission ticket, a flower.  It doesn't have to be a lot.   This week or weekend at home.pdf Copies also available in Pre-School.

Children say...

We are very privileged to work with your fantastic children and we would like to share with you the things they tell us....

As we were talking about our families one little boy said that in his family he had, "mummy, daddy, me and kitchens..."

Coming in from outside a little boy said, "Two of my ears are hurting"

"Have you got a vest on" one little asked when the lady said no she asked, "why not?" Good question!! Mother knows best!!
