Welcome to Preschool
Mrs Cole, Mrs Hicks, Mrs Alexander and Mrs Bryan
Please make sure that the children have welly boots in school all the time as we love going outside in all different types of weather.
Welcome back after February half term. We hope you all had a lovely break and are looking forward to the term ahead.
This term we have started off by learning all about dinosaurs. We will be finding out when dinosaurs were alive and we will also be thinking about where they lived and what they looked like. We have started off by exploring textures based on a story called Dinosaur Roar! There are giant dinosaurs in our classroom and we are all working together to collage them to make them lumpy, sharp and slimy. We have also had a Dinosaur Museum appear in our classroom and we will be learning how to use magnifying glasses to look carefully at different fossils.
Maybe you could find out the names of the different dinosaurs at home and come into school and tell us all about them! We are starting to learn them already and have shared a story called Harry and his Bucketful of Dinosaurs which contains lots of different types of dinosaurs.
We will be continuing to develop our physical skills by learning a dinosaur dance which you can watch at home as well if you would like to. We have put a copy of the link to the song at the end of this information.
Later on in the half term we will be celebrating Mother's Day and we will be learning all about why we celebrate Easter. We are even going to be having our own brood hen and eggs that we will watch hatch. How egg-citing!
