Welcome to Woodlands Preschool!
Mrs Hicks, Mrs Bryan and Mrs Smith
Welcome to Woodlands Preschool! We are really looking forward to working with you and your children this year. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and speak to one of us. We look forward to creating lots of happy memories this year with the children.
What a lovely first half term the children have had at preschool. We are so proud of how well they have settled in and we are really looking forward to the half term ahead.
This half term our topic is Festivals. We will also be thinking about light and will be reading lots of stories set in the day and at night time.
We started this topic last half term by learning about Diwali. In the first week of term we will be learning about Bonfire Night and will be making rockets out of junk modelling materials.
We will then be learning about animals that come out at night, such as bats and hedgehogs. We will also be working really hard to develop our fine and gross motor skills by taking part in Dough Disco and through our learning outside the classroom in the hall and in our outside area.
There are lots of festivals and events which we will be focusing on as well this half term such as Remembrance Day, Children in Need, Thanksgiving, Hanukah and Christmas. Keep checking our weekly letter to see what our learning topic will be for the following week.
Towards the end of the half term we will be starting to practise for our Preschool Nativity performance. We will look forward to welcoming you to watch this in the last week of the term.
Try Dough Disco at home! All you need is a little pot of dough...
