September 2019 - July 2020
Welcome to the Little Learners Blog. Here you can see what exciting things we've been doing throughout the year.
For the start of a new pre-school year we have been busy with lots of new things. In maths we have been measuring outside and have been exporing our bodies with movement and balance in Yoga. We have been showing off our football skills for physical development and listening skills. We got to make Gruffalo crumble with apples, sultanas and beetroot. This was very yummy!

This week at Forest School we have been making Elderflower cordial with Elderflower flower heads, lemons, sugar and water. We have also been counting, making repeating patterns and sorting on the maths table.
Mrs Robbins introduced us to Gulliver Bear, he will be sent home with a child each weekend to look after.
On Pyjamarama day, the children and staff came into school in their PJ's to help every child get a bedtime story. We even had a visit from Mrs Nathan from Red Class.
Some of us bought in our favourite stories from home and we discussed them in pre-school. We had a visit from Somerset Music where the children used sticks to tap out a beat, keeping a steady pulse and developing their rhythm and co-orindation.

Also our caterpillars have arrived for the children to learn about their life cycles.
This month we have been planting seeds and watering our garden. We helped to unload our new sand for the sandpit but the bucket was so heavy. We went out and about exploring, looking for wildlife and jumping like a kangaroo! We also had decorating time with Australian dot art.
In our final week before half term we have been tasting the fruit Handa had in her basket, the banana and pineapple were very popular.
Our Home learning over the Easter break was to design an Easter bonnet. On our first day back with had an assembly with Mrs Sherrard where we could show them off to all the other children. On Monday 29th April, we had a visit from a Yoga teacher; we did the bird, sun game and umbrella game.
The children and Mrs Dare have now finished the pond, let’s hope we have lots of wildlife visiting soon.
