HEAT WAVE !

Mon, 02 Jul 2018 13:06:00 +0000


With the weather being so nice we've taken the opportunity to enable the children to paddle in the water in the tuff trays this week. Lots of fun was had by all. Out in the sunshine we used the different sand timers and settled on the ten minute timer to see how long it took the sun to dry the water patches. 

 

The little ones at Broadway Playschool had a great time when we introduced the mud kitchen. They made some lovely muddy handprint pictures with staff



All the older children at Towerview Playschool have been doing very good sitting and 'good listening' at Circle Time and it is lovely to see how they enjoy us sharing their news.

The children have had a great time playing football on the field, where they showed off their skills and even scored lots of goals against the staff. 

This week we have been doing a lot of mark making. We have also been exploring different mediums such as mud, paint, glue, glitter and water.  The junk modelling continues to be popular too.

SANDFORD FOREST SCHOOL TRIP

Mon, 02 Jul 2018 12:58:00 +0000

What a wonderful day we had ! 
Emma who owns the farm made us very welcome and the children responded very well to the safety talk. 
We all went into the forest school wood where we saw the different areas and went to base camp - after a forest fire and crumpets and milk and fruit snack time everyone went off to explore the forest.
The staff were strategically spaced so that they could watch and support but allow the children freedom to explore.
We had den exploring, rope challenge, swinging on tyre swings climbing hillocks , sliding down , balancing along tree trunks, playing in the mud kitchen and wallowing in the mud pits. children collected water, built shelters and explored the wild areas.
We had a picnic lunch together after the muddy children had been hosed down ! 
and toasted marshmallows on the fire after whittling hazel sticks. 
It was a lovely lovely day enjoyed by children and staff - with some tired children on the coach on the way home ! 

BROADWAY ARTS FESTIVAL

Mon, 18 Jun 2018 17:17:00 +0000

This week as part of the Broadway Arts festival we were lucky enough to have a visit  from John Kirk the Story teller - he was amazing …...the children had such a lovely time. He performed 'The Gingerbread Man' and 'The Three Little Pigs' and everyone took part. 

One day we enjoyed a walk to the local shop to buy fruit and then we all helped to make a fruit salad the following day. The children all cut up a variety of fruit and showed good control and it was delicious !


At Broadway Playschool the younger children have really enjoyed playing outside all together and spending time playing in the water.We are all enjoying having the visiting student back and the warm weather has allowed us to have snack time outside with the two year olds. They have also enjoyed the play dough this week. 
At Towerview much fun has been had with the castle and figures, this week, self selecting the equipment and lots of imaginative play seen and extended language heard.

At Forest school this week we explored the bugs and some of the children made a bug hotel with a swimming pool. The building at the back of the forest school area is complete and we are now able to hear and see the birds.

WE HAVE BEEN ASKED NOT TO USE THE SCHOOL CAR PARK AS IT IS FOR SCHOOL STAFF ONLY - thankyou for your cooperation.
