Last week the children had a wonderful time exploring our local village. On their many walks they had great fun looking at what was growing (and testing the staff's knowledge on the names of plants!) spotting where many of them live and calling in on gardening Grandma and Grandad.
Sadly, the Thursday morning turned out to be the worst for weather, so a quick visit to plant potatoes unfortunately meant that the rest of the pre-school planting at Grandma & Grandads wasn't accomplished. Because of this, we've now decided that the runner bean and sunflower seeds will be planted this Thursday when Grandma & Grandad come to pre-school.
We are also being joined this week by the lovely Mrs Clarke, who is going to make vegetable pizza's with the children, to continue our exploration of planting and growing.

“A great big thank you to Dexter’s Daddy for reading us a fabulous , fun story about a mole in German on Friday! We really enjoyed learning animal names in German.
We have had a great time this week with our mark making , especially using the ribbon sticks in the big hall and painting to different kinds of music including Handel’s water music which Little Mrs Shaw brought in for us.
We even made our own music with our milk bottle xylophones and with sand shakers!”
Last week at Cheapside we had great fun making our erupting volcanoes. Did the children tell you how we made them?
This week, we will be out and about in the village looking at what is growing and recording what we see through photographs (taken by the children), drawings and labels, working towards creating a 'Growing Book of the Village' We hope you like it when it's complete!
