It was all about love this week with Valentine's Day cards being made by all the children.

WORKING HARD - CHILDREN AND STAFF !

Mon, 04 Feb 2019 17:22:00 +0000

All the staff have been working hard to get their paediatric first aid certificates renewed. This means spending four  X  3 hour evenings of training to make sure we can keep all our Playschool children safe. Well done team ! ' 

One rainy afternoon some of the children enjoyed standing in the water and making "trainer prints" as they marched around.

Many of the children enjoyed digging for fossils in the outside area and the sandpit , one child even found a dinosaur egg!! 

The children have enjoyed playing 'What's in the Box' this week and one child
was very pleased when we said "our activity today is What's in the Box", they
replied with a punch of the fists in the air and said "YESSS!!"

USA

Mon, 04 Feb 2019 17:15:00 +0000

The children have been working hard punching out stars and gluing them along with red strips to make the USA star spangled banner as we look at America this week . One child spent nearly an hour concentrating on this task while others started then came back later to complete to their satisfaction . 

The children have made trains and planes out of chairs and have been heading to the seaside and  London. They have all seemed to have as particular interest in London this week. With one child telling us about his mummy has gone to London.   We think we need to look at London next week ! 

SETTLING BACK IN

Mon, 04 Feb 2019 17:08:00 +0000


At Towerview Playschool this week we have enjoyed seeing the children really engaging in role play with each other and how they are starting to connect with each other much more. 
Wednesday morning it was great to see the 3 and 4 year old making an aeroplane out of ALL the chairs and going on holiday. They included handbags, beautiful dresses and even a pilot, all done completely independently. Brilliant! 

At Broadway Playschool on Monday the 2-3 yr olds had the soft foam balls out at the end of the session and with lots of space to run, the children really enjoyed running after the balls.  They kept asking the adults to kick / bring the balls back asking "again again!  Also some goals were scored !
