Over the last month we’ve been exploring the season of autumn and have spent lots of time outdoors looking at autumn colours, listening to autumn sounds and collecting lovely natural resources to use in preschool.
There were so many activities that we got involved with this month – starting with fireworks and Diwali. The children listened to the story of Diwali and made clay Diwali tea light holders. Our fireworks theme was all about colour and the children made some amazing pictures. Remembrance Day was another highlight this month – the children created some beautiful poppy prints and they learnt all about the meaning of Remembrance Day. They even joined in with a two-minute silence and did an incredible job!
We also joined in with Children in Need with some fun Pudsey inspired activities and we enjoyed dressing up and wearing our pyjamas into preschool. And we supported anti bullying week by wearing odd socks to preschool.
World Nursery Rhyme Week took place this month too and we joined up as a nursery rhyme ambassador. Nursery rhymes are a really important part of our day at Kempshott Under Fives, they help to boost early literacy skills, language development, early numeracy and social, physical and emotional skills. By signing up to become a nursery rhyme ambassador we are able to access so many wonderful resources to share with our families so they can enjoy the benefits at home too.
We are of course continuing with our small group work every week with Write Dance, a super fun session and a fantastic way to build motor skills and introduce writing skills; Science experiments and our cooking sessions when we make or bake treats each week. Next on the baking table will be some yummy Christmas goodies!
