This Half Term

Regular Session Events:

This term we will focus on each child's interests and build their learning around that.  The children have expressed interest in "People who Help us" so we have been exploring different occupations such as: Hairdressers, The Fire Service, Hospitals and the Police by looking at different books and changing our role play and small world areas to reflect these occupations.


In maths we have been focusing on Numbers.  We have been using various toys such as:  compare bears, vehicles and farm animals to sort by colour and to count and put in different sized groups.  We have used farm animals to sort and put into pens,  We have used the Thomas trains to put in number order.


At circle time we have been having fun with number rhymes such as: 5 little ducks, 5 currant buns, 10 green bottles, 5 little monkeys.   We have been reading stories that have repeated refrains and learning about characters and the way stories are structured.


The instruments are continuing to be popular with all the children.  We have been playing them inside and outside/


Outside we have been exploring the changes to the trees and plants as well as collecting conkers and leaves to sort and make collages with.  We have used pears growing in our garden to look at the insides and made prints with them..  


Outdoor Play

Children will have free access to our secure outdoor area. To ensure your child can make the most of being outside it is essential that they are dressed appropriately for the weather. If the weather is chilly they will need a coat and wellys. If it is warm please make sure they have clothes that cover their shoulders, have a hat on their peg and that you have put sunscreen on them before you leave them at Playgroup.

Show and Tell

Show and Tell is a great opportunity for your child to bring in items that are special to them. Children are encouraged to show their items to the rest of the group and talk about them. This gives them confidence to talk to a large group. Please can you support us by naming any items that are brought in. All items are kept in our “treasure box” until Show and Tell time..

The Fabby Board

This board celebrates things that the children have done well (e.g. putting their own coat on for the first time, building a model, trying an activity they're not keen on, etc.). Fabbys are removed each term and added to each child’s learning journey.
