There are plenty of reasons to get outdoors with the children this Easter. Here's just a few ideas for some family fun with the National Trust.
We had our half termly visit from the RBWM mobile library today. Story-time was super-fun in the library and the children helped select some fun books for us to borrow for pre-school next term.
We can't wait for the next visit - Friday 24 May 2019.
We had a visit to pre-school this week from BA Captain Peter Naji, who read us the story "Amazing Aeroplanes" and set up some fun role-play with Mrs Shaw as the co-pilot and the children as very eager passengers. The children all had lots of questions and loved the interactive session. Thank you Peter.
We are looking for more parents to come and talk to the children about their jobs next term - please contact Mrs Shaw if you are willing to spare a half hour or so.
Continuing from last week, this week at pre-school we are exploring the start of spring and what happens to the environment around us. We will also be looking at the life cycles of different animals. We will do this by introducing spring related books, maths activities and lots of crafts🌸🐣
The letter of the week is 'A' so if your child would like to bring in anything for show and tell that would be great!🍎🐜✈️

Attached is the planning for this week and last, please feel free to come and add your child’s interest to the parents contributions section, or please feel free to send it through on Famly.
We made the most of the wonderful weather last week with our Music with Mad Academy session outside on the astro turf.
Some photos from our very well received visits from parents talking about their jobs and sharing stories with the children...
Thank you Inspector Andy Blackburn and PC Jude Blackburn who came to talk about POLICE work and Bernice Littleboy who shared some lovely stories about the work of a MIDWIFE.

This week at pre-school we will be starting our Christmas festivities. ⛄️
We will be doing lots of Christmas crafts and completing our winter displays, so be sure to look at your children’s art work throughout the week. 🎄
The role play area will be turning into a Santa’s workshop. Please can you bring in any unwanted boxes or tubs for the children to practice wrapping. 🎅🏼
We will also be taking a trip to the local post box on Thursday within our key groups to post some Christmas cards from one key group to another. 📮
Now for the extremely exciting bit; we will be receiving a special delivery on Monday at pre-school.... I’m sure you will hear all about it at pick up.📦
At Cheapside Pre-school we are always working towards teaching the children about healthy eating and teaching them the importance of taking care of our bodies with what we eat and keeping active.
We would like to share this information with parents too so that we can all work together to make healthier choices at our mealtimes.
Please see attached some information from Eat Better Start Better about what should be included when putting together a healthy lunchbox for your child.
According to the British nutrition foundation a balanced packed lunch should include:
* 1 portion of starchy food - ie bread, pasta, rice or similar carbohydrate
* 1 portion of fruit AND 1 portion of veg
* 1 portion of dairy
* 1 portion of protein
This week we will be looking at the different types of bugs that we can find in the forest and outside in our pre-school garden. We will also be exploring autumn and noticing the changes around us.
The letter of the week is Mm
“The mum and the dad make many meals
The mum and dad make many meals
For the hungry children”
The number of the week is 7.
Please can we make sure all children have appropriate clothing and footwear for outdoor playtime as the weather is now getting wetter and colder.
